English term or phrase:vientos (in this context)
Industrial Safety regulations regarding the handling of loads suspended from cranes:
"Para controlar el movimiento u oscilación de una carga suspendida se deberá usar un número apropiado de ***"vientos"*** de soga, con un largo conveniente. En esta forma se puede mover y asentar una carga suspendida en forma segura y sin peligro para los trabajadores."
What are these "vientos"? I guess they are just ropes that hand down from the load, and that the workers on the ground use them to control the load, but what is the technical term used to describe them in English?
