All you have to do is screw the support beams into the ceiling, attach the winding axle with the enclosed hardware, thread the steel cable through the support beam wheels and attach to the platform, then use the provided hand crank to raise and lower the platform. “You can safely store up to 250 pounds on it,” says Shaha.
“It’s a great way to keep the lawnmower out of the way in the wintertime, or you can use it to store file boxes, third row car seats, outdoor furniture, tires, pretty much anything you can think of that normally takes up a lot of space.”
An added plus is the safety factor. The American Ladder Institute reports that each year, more than a half million people are injured and 165,000 visit emergency rooms after falling off ladders. With a HeavyLift system in your garage, you’ll never have to climb a ladder again. All you’ll have to do to get down something heavy is hook up the hand crank and lower the load, then take whatever you need off the platform and crank it back up to the ceiling.
And once you get those bulkier items out of the way, you can make better use of the limited shelf space you have in the garage.
So instead of using shelves to store boxes and other bulky items, you can put cleaners, auto accessories and other things you need immediate access to on them.
