Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JimS Works great for lifting storage items to loft.
I bought this to lift items to a 2nd story loft in my storage building. It preforms just as i hoped! You do have to think ahead, because Gator gives you no way to adjust the cables for level. I also bought the Gator 2x3 platform to complete my lift system. The only problem I've found is the load does need to be balance carefully.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TomS Difficult to level and install. Price has to be right
Alll the parts came in the box covered in plastic and fairly well protected. The quality of the top bar with the pulleys was the only main issue. The cables were coiled up and required a lot of effort to remove the kinks and release the tension. Hanging it to the ceiling was not particularly easy but once installed, everything worked as expected.... Except the load bar wasn't level! So, I pulled the outer ceiling bar, moved it out about two inches and was able to level the load bar. Thankfully, the first install was parallel to the ceiling beams. The second install was perpendicular and I'm unable to move out the outer ceiling bar to level the lift.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hardy Nice way to increase floor space
I ordered this to get several of my family's bikes off of my garage floor, but I didn't want to use the powered lifts that were available as I felt it was overkill. This fit the bill very well. Installation was not too bad, though it did take a little longer than expected as the directions were not the best, and I had to add some blocking to my rafters because of the direction my garage rafters were running.
This works great for lifting several bikes off the floor at once. I have 11' high ceiling in my garage, so this was able to lift our bikes high enough that I could still fit my truck underneath during winter. The hand crank is easily used, I can use one hand to lift 4 bikes at once. Its a purchase I am happy I made.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by luis looks good , functions below expectation
Easy to assemble. Not enough holes to adapt to different garage overhangs. The winding spool has no guides. When lifting bikes, cables slip and shift causing bike to jerk when raising.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pewaukeeIronman Does the job, a bit tough to install
This product works well for the four bikes that I am using it with. The bar doesn't sit level which bothers me but it is close enough that it works fine. It was a bit of a pain to install...the instructions for that are lousy. Once I got it up the second time it worked fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RLABruce Works as advertised.
No problems. It works! I needed a bike storage that got a seldom-used bike out of the way, and this does it. I don't think it would be as useful for a bike you ride everyday, but to store one off-season it is excellent.
