Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Buzzard Perfect for making use of otherwise wasted space.
This is a very good product, I thought enough of it to buy a second one after I installed the first one. My only concern is the quality of the platform. It seems to me the rest of it is fairly heavy duty, but the platform a bit flimsy. ...but again I am sure it has been engineered to carry the 250lbs safely. I used it in my metal building garage to make use of otherwise wasted space. I installed one for a customer of mine on a normal 9 ft high garage ceiling with wooden joists.. She was very pleased and it looks cool too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nobody Great space saver
Mounted by myself. Would be better if I had help. Instructions were clear and accurate. You will want to use electric power to raise and lower platform because hand crank is slow. If installed correctly, lift device will not fail.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BeachBum Great Addition To The Garage
This storage platform was mainly purchased to hold my car roof box overhead in the garage. It also has some extra room left over for a few bulky items. I was really impressed when I put my heavy hitch-mounted cargo basket on it and raised it to the ceiling without issue! It comes with a hand-crank and a drill attachment, which fit my drill perfectly and speeds up the process of raising and lowering the platform. I was a little disappointed that the assembly kit didn't come with washers for some of the bolts; however, it doesn't seem to affect performance or safety (I just like washers to spread the load and keep the nuts from turning on the metal frame). Pick up some extra washers and this is a five-star product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by martin Great lift, easy to install
This lift has easy to follow instructions. It only took me, a 56 year old about 30 minutes to install. The hard part was installing the ceiling rails by myself. I just installed one bolt in the middle loosely so I could pre drill the remaining holes for that side. After completing installation, I used a power drill to raise 200 lbs to the ceiling with no problem.
My only recommendation would be to replace the plastic rollers with brass ones. I did that yesterday in about an hour. I brought 4 pulleys from Home Depot that worked great. Only cost $4.10 a piece to replace.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Great Product, not easy to assemble
The product works exactly as advertised. The easiest shelving unit I have ever used, you never have to lift anything over your head, and you don't have to bend over to pick anything up. Just adjust the height to your needs.
The one critique I do have is the assembly. While it looks pretty straight forward to install, it is a two person, two ladder job. Doing it by yourself with one ladder was rough, and it didn't need to be. I have built enough IKEA furniture to know that there are ways to make this process easier.
But man once it is up, it is a dream!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by M88M 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tall 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 12ftStorage Get it off the floor
This is a very good product for storing items that are not needed frequently, i.e., christmas/holiday decorations. Follow the directions and make sure the lag bolts are in the center of the rafters. There was a previous rating that stated that the tag screws had a tendency to shear their heads when tightened. I was prepared to use larger screws, however I ran several test to try and get a lag screw to fail and was unsuccessful. I used the provided hardware and had no screw failures. I mounted mine (2) in a garage with a 12ft ceiling. The platform lowers to about 4ft above the floor.
