Please review all steps in the installation process prior to the actual installation. Begin assembly of the storage platform on the ground by first laying the metal grid on top of the rectangular beams with the smaller holes on top. Slide the J bolts through the holes and hook over the edges. Install the remaining hardware and tighten securely. Next, find a ceiling mounting location with joists 48 inches apart. The arms of the storage system will be attached to these joists using the included hardware. If joists 48 inches apart cannot be found, you can span the joists by mounting the arms to a sturdy board, then, attach the board to the span joists.
Next, fasten the arms to the T-brackets, then attach the arms to the ceiling joists, being certain to square them up along the joist line before mounting. Now, assemble the winding axle with the supplied hardware. Slide the round end of the axle into the bearing, then align the gear drive’s square hole with the axle and attach the gear drive with the supplied cap screws. Be sure the nylon cables face towards the center of the axle. Then, thread the nylon cables from the winding axle to create the pulley assembly used to raise and lower the platform. Attach the cargo platform using the included bolts at all four corners. Level the platform by pulling the cable through the nylon rings.
Next, assemble the winding crank with the included sleeve, lock, nuts, and bolts. Test the platform’s operation by winding it up and down several times. If it operates smoothly, lower the platform to waist level and evenly load up to 250 pounds of gear. Raise the platform to its highest position and engage the yellow safety lock. To lower or raise the platform, disengage the lock by inserting the crank hook into the lock slot, pulling towards the gear loop to lock or away from the gear loop to unlock. Installation of the Racor Heavy Lift Storage System is now complete.
