Customer Questions & Answers

Where is the hand crank? Hand crank lets you raise and lower platform with ease…. I don't see where the hand crank is accessed.

Can you access the hand crank from the ground? Or do you need to get on a ladder and crank it down? I wish someone would do a video of how they get the lift up and down.

Can you add a motor to lift it rather than the hand crank?

Asked by: Jeff
They come with a drill adapter so you can power the lift with a drill motor which works well.

250 lb. HeavyLift Storage Platform is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 275.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great This product is well built and designed. It installed easily and with an added length of chain on all corners it works in a garage with 12' ceiling. The rod was modified to reach the needed hieght by cutting it in two and adding a 4' length of 3/8 solid steel rod in the middle keeping the hook and drive ends intact. I basically use it as a freight evevator to load items into the loft. They should make a motorized version.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Works as advertised. The chuck attachment for the drill needs some improving that's why I can't give it 5 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Storage solution Really smooth and easy to use. If you plan your space correctly, keeping in mind where you should be standing when raising & lowering, this lift is great for garages that have unused space up above everything else. Install is a breeze if you have exposed rafters. Make sure you are exact with the 48" between the two brackets. Instructions are clear and easy to follow. It's particularly great for 2 or more stand up paddleboards or kayaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a deal! This thing is awesome and Home Depot has the best price! It was quite easy to install and works great! The hardest part of the installation is finding your joists and laying it out. After that it was only about a 1/2 hour install. Instructions were quite clear and there are installation videos on youtube. I used it to take the hard top off my Jeep Wrangler and it worked perfectly! It's now a one person job. The only negative is that if you raise it without any weight on it, the cables ride over each other and it raises crooked. I put a 12 pack of Coke on it and that addressed the issue. I love this thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HeavyLift Storage Platform The employees at Homedepot were EXTREMELY helpful in retrieving this product that was delivered to the store. THANK YOU! The instructions made the platform easy to assemble and install. I would recommend using rare earth magnets, that you can buy at at Homedepot, to locate the screws in your ceiling 2x4s to attach the lift. The lift mechanism works exactly as described and has given me a place to efficiently store my Christmas decorations. My ceiling is 12 ft high so I wish I had an extension to drive mechanism.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good storage in 10-12' ceiling height I bought 4 of these storage racks. When I first opened the box and laid out all the pieces, I was a bit OVERWHELMED! But after assembling the first rack, the rest went very easy. I wished the gauge of steel was a little heavier on all parts. The hardest part of installation was finding the rafters and lining them up. Once I located them they went up fairly fast. I also used my cordless drill to raise and lower the units. It worked out easy to do it this way.

Would recommend that washers be used for the lag bolts that attach to the ceiling joists to support it. Highly recommend that you use the drill attachment to raise and lower the shelf. It is much easier and quicker. We installed it about two weeks ago and it has been working great. It totally meets our needs and expectations.

Holds a lot of storage bins up and out of the way so that I can use both spaces in my 2-car garage. The only problem I have is that it is hard to raise with the crank when fully loaded. But, its the best storage solution for my needs since I no longer have a basement.
