Clip from Aussie Inventions that Changed the World  |  Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  The History Channel  |  June 24, 2019

A true icon of Australian suburbia, but one that should rightly be called the Toyne's Hoist! Committed to his invention throughout war and personal tragedy, Gilbert Toyne patented the enduing design, manufactured and marketed it decades before Lawrence Hill's hoist arrived. Toyne's legacy was to invent one of the most practical, labour-saving devices to grace Australian backyards in 20th century - his galvanised-metal, rotary clothes hoist.
