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.
