For which body do you want the Free Body Diagram? ... mass K, mass L, the pulley at N, or the junction of the cables at H

Free body diagram help

There are three forces acting at H. First there is a horizontal force acting toward point G. Second, there is a vertical force due to the weight of K. Third there is a force toward point N. The magnitude of the downward force is, of course, mg. The magnitude of the force toward N is the same as the weight of the mass at L. Decompose the force toward N into its horizontal and vertical components.
