the Assembly Diagram on page 8.
NOTE: Tools required: Phillips Head Screwdriver (not included), or Power Drill/Screwdriver

1.
For best results mount the Lift Brackets (1 & 2) so the Hook Pulleys (3A & 3B) are
directly above the Bicycle’s seat and handlebar. See Figure 1
NOTE: If you wish, you may attach the entire assembly to a Mounting Board (not included),
then mount the board to the ceiling joists. See Figure 1
2.
Measure the distance between the handlebars and the back of the seat. This is
where the Hook Pulleys (3A & 3B) will be attached to the bike. See Figure 1
3.
Use a stud finder (not included) to locate a ceiling joist. If your ceiling is covered
with drywall, look for nails, irregularities or attached fixtures. These are clues to locating joists. Use a small nail (not included) or a screwdriver (not included) to run a
pilot hole into the ceiling to insure you have located a joist. Once a joist is located,
measure from the sidewall to the joist. Transfer your seat/handlebar measurement
along the length of the joist so Front and Rear Lift Brackets (1 & 2) will line up. See
Figure 1

Using the Wood Screws (6) provided, mount each of the Lift Brackets (1 & 2) to
either the joists or the Mounting Board. See Figure 2
5.
Ensure that the Hook Pulleys (3A & 3B) line up with your Handlebar/Seat measurements. See Figure 1
NOTE: If you are planning to mount the Lift Brackets (1 & 2) across the joists instead of
parallel with them, you will need to use a Mounting Board as seen in Figure 1

Push one end of the Nylon Rope (5) up through the square hole on the Rear Lift
Bracket (1) and tie a double knot. Thread the Rope down through the Rear Hook
Pulley (3A), then up through the Pulley on the Rear Lift Bracket (1A). Lead the
Rope through the rear pulley of the Front Lift Bracket (2) and then down through
the Front Hook Pulley (3B). Finish by taking the Rope up through the Pulley of the
Front Lift Bracket (2A). The remainder of the Rope (5) will now hang free and be
used to raise and lower your bike. Excess Rope will be tied off at the Rope Cleat
(4). See Figure 3

Using the final two Wood Screws (6), attach the Rope Cleat (4) to a stud or other
secure surface located on the side wall. If no stud is available, you can use wall
anchors (not included). Do not cut the Rope (5). Use the Rope Cleat to wrap the
excess. See Figure 4
Operation Instructions
RAISING THE BIKE FOR STORAGE
1.
Before first use, test the Bicycle Lift by using small sandbags (or similar items) that
weigh no more than 50 lb. and are evenly distributed between the front and back
pulleys. This will show if the Bicycle Lift is installed properly.
2.
Lower Front and Rear Hook Pulleys (3A & 3B) as evenly as possible and to a height
where you can comfortably lift the Handlebars and Seat onto the Front and Rear
Hook Pulleys (3B & 3A). Tie off the Rope (5) on the Rope Cleat (4) to prevent slippage of the Pulleys as you lift the Bike onto the Hook Pulleys.
3.
Once the Handlebars and Seat are securely hanging on their respective Hook Pulleys, unfasten the Rope (5) from the Rope Cleat (4) and slowly and evenly pull the
Bicycle to the height needed. Anytime you release pressure on the Rope you will
engage the Rope Lock located on the Front Lift Bracket (2) and the Bike will stay
where it is suspended at the time.
4.
After you have raised the Bicycle to the height you where you want it to be, wrap
the Rope (5) around the Rope Cleat (4) using a figure eight motion. NEVER cut off
excess rope.

Page REMOVING THE BIKE FROM STORAGE
1.
Unwrap the Rope (5) from the Rope Cleat (4). Even though the Bike should be held
secure by the Rope Lock to prevent it from falling, hang on to the Rope (5) securely
as an added safety precaution.
2.
While maintaining tension on the Rope (5), pull it towards the Rear Lift Bracket (3A).
This will release the Rope Lock and the Bike can then be lowered slowly to a height
where it is comfortable for you to lift the Handlebars and Seat away from their respective Hook Pulleys. Before removing the Bike from the Hook Pulleys, secure the
Rope (5) around the Rope Cleat (4) fo prevent the Bike from suddenly dropping.
3.
After removing the Bicycle from the Bike Lift, raise the Hook Pulleys (3A & 3B) to
a height where they will not be at risk to anyone walking beneath them. Tie off the
excess Rope (5) by wrapping it around the Rope Cleat (4).
