I am using a block and tackle to hoist a loveseat to an upstairs window. It has to pass through the window in its upright position. There is not enough clearance between the house and the hoist eye-bolt to hoist it in that position, so I plan to hoist it in the vertical position as shown and then pull it through the window horizontally. How should I rig the ropes to allow me to rotate it into the horizontal position at the window?

so the orange line is your pull line and the black line is a rope you use to tie the pull line to the couch. once you get it up to the correct height untie the black line and lower it to horizontal..
