Protecta 8 ft Adjustable Tripod Kit AK105A
Protecta Confined Space 8 ft. Tripod
The Protecta AK105A Confined Space Entry and Retrieval Tripods are designed to keep workers safe while entering and exiting a confined space. This is a tripod that will meet your budget but also meet all the ratings put out there by OSHA and ANSI.
With its ease of operation anybody can set this unit up. To set up just pull the legs out and snap lock pins into place. Each leg is adjustable to 8 different height just in case the area where you are working is not even. There is also an adjustable leg cable that connects to all 3 legs to keep them from spreading under the load.
The tripod itself is made from aluminum with the head of the tripod being cast aluminum and the legs being anodized aluminum. Each leg has reflective safety tape helping with visibility at night along with anti-skid on the “feet” of the tripod.
As a single anchorage point the tripod is rated at 5,000 lbs. Meets OSHA 1910 & ANSI Z359.1-1998 standards for confined-space entry devices.
Protecta AK205AG Winch
The Protecta AK205AG comes with 50 feet of 3/16 in. cable. Other lengths are available, but this has been the most popular. The winch is man-rated, and meets or exceeds UL requirements for load capacity. It is available in a variety of lengths and utilizes galvanized or (optional) stainless steel 3/16 in. diameter cable. It features a detachable handle, oil impregnated bearings, a safety lock, and a corrosion-resistant finish. Winching speed is typically 20 fpm at a 4:1 ratio. The winch is man-rated at 310 lbs. It includes four disc brakes and is manufactured domestically.
The AK200 Series Winch is simple to operate in that to reverse direction, you just turn the handle in the opposite direction. No manipulation of components is required.
The 8003205 pulley is a needed part for the AK105A tripod to work. The pulley is used in conjunction with the winch to help guide the winch cable. There are no tools needed for installation as the pulley hangs from the tripod eye bolt and attaches with a self-locking push pin.

Can I use this equipment on top of a truck tanker to insure people in confined jobs inside?1 answer
If the surface of the truck tank is flat, then it should be fine. The tripod needs to be on a flat surface all around in order for it to have stability.
This would be more ideal for tank confined spaces:
