I would first contact Home Depot’s customer service dept. and perhaps they can put you in touch with the manufacturer. Ours came with the lockout, I would not have installed it without it.

You can get hollow tubing and add a section to lengthen it, and drill a hole and put a bolt thru it.

What’s the weight of the product itself also I assume you can use more then one?

The weight of the storage itself is 60 pounds. You can use more than one platform as long as you don't use the same ceiling joists that you used in the first platform..

The space between bolts on one side is a tight 48" on the other side is about 45", So you should be able to lay a sheet. Just remember, this subtracts from you 250lb weight restriction. Hope this helps!

The ceiling mounting bracket comes down about 3.5" and the lifting cage has 5.5" i-bolts. That is about 9" total and it could be less if you used shorter I-bolts.

You can only make the arms as wide of the base, otherwise the cable would not wind up right.

No you cannot, reason being, you have a couple of inches that the mechanism hangs down. Also I had to move mine to the middle of my pole barn for that reason.

Does Home Depot install these storage platforms?

I do not know if Home Depot does. However, my daughter and I installed ours in about 30 minutes. Needed a ladder, stud finder, drill and nut driver (crescent wrench will do). Someone with a few basic tools can handle it.

This storage platform was easy to assemble and install. We already have one and have been so pleased with it that we purchased another one for the other side of the garage. I like that it has a locking mechanism which prevents any possibility of it unrolling onto my car. I also like that it has an adapter to fit my drill to lower the platform more quickly.

Easy to assemble but the instructions could have been better. Lag bolts that come with kit are a little light I would recommend using a higher grade bolt.

I felt the shelf (floor) could be stronger, I added a 4' x 4' x 7/16 OSB on top and 2"x4" flat under the metal floor and screwed through the OSB to the 2x4 to hold it all together. I also mounted safety chains to each corner should the cable fail, better to be safe than sorry. I love it, so far so good.

Good product. Assembly and installation went smoothly. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. Plan to spend a couple hours but it's worth it. Lift performed as expected. I tested and then loaded the lift with 200 lbs., raised it easily by hand with very little effort. Cables wound up evenly with no issues. Easy to level.

The graphics for the installation needed a bit of clarification. It performs as I had hoped it would and allows me to store my canoe in my garage out of everyone's way. Good purchase.

This worked exactly as stated. The pulley is a little slow, but it came with all the correct parts. It was big enough to hold 10 outdoor furniture cushions, which was my intent. I paid a handyman to install it, and he had no problem.

Just what I was looking for to get heavy boxes into my 10 foot high loft. easy assembly and well made. I have a 12 by 16 barn with a 10 foot loft that I had trouble getting anything heavy into. Found this at home depot and built a 2x6 frame to mount it to. Works great. Had to extend pole for drill and stops 2 foot from ground but that's not a problem. Could put longer cables on it, maybe later.

Easy assembly and install. Holds more than I thought it would and the drill operation for raising/lowering is fantastic. Had a little difficulty getting one of my platforms level... I feel like the cables on one side were just longer and even after fully adjusting it up on one side and down on the other it still isn't completely level, but not to the extent that it affects the functionality. I would definitely buy this product again.
