Instruction Manual
SMART-LIFT 236 Electric Ceiling Lifts
PREPARE THE CEILING OPENING AND INSTALL THE LIFT
Because of the wide variety of possible mounting situations, Chief Manufacturing can only provide general guidelines
for preparing the location where the Smart-Lift will be installed. Study the following information carefully, and adapt it as
necessary to fit your specific installation.
WARNING: Be especially aware of the weight of the lift, and the potential for personal injury or of damage to
the lift if it is not adequately mounted. The lift (without a projector) weighs approximately 85 lbs (38.5 kg).
The “General Guidelines” below, and the information on the following pages, covers the most common mounting situations:
• Suspend the lift from threaded rods that secure to the structural cross brace.
• Side-mount the lift to the ceiling joists or secure the lift to a wood framework mounting to the joists.
General Guidelines
• Carefully determine the position of the ceiling opening and its distance from, and orientation toward, the screen.
• If possible, prepare an area above the ceiling that is sufficiently larger than the lift, Leaving at least an 8” access to
all sides and above the top of the lift for any future maintenance or repair.
WARNING: Improper installation can result in serious personal injury! To avoid such injury, make sure
that the ceiling structural members can support a redundant weight factor five times the total weight of the
equipment you intend to support overhead. If they cannot, the ceiling must be reinforced before you
install the lift.
WARNING: Improper installation can result in serious injury! Plenum rated installations require electrically hard wiring the unit through the provided strain relief, the use of Class 2 control wiring, and all open
holes in the housing (except joist tabs) must be sealed using foil tape. You must adhere to all local codes.
CAUTION: For smooth and reliable operation, the lift must be installed square and parallel in all dimensions.
Avoid stressing the lift at any time during installation.

Instruction Manual
SMART-LIFT 236 Electric Ceiling Lifts
Installation in a Suspended Ceiling (using threaded rods)
You can suspend the lift housing from three 3/8-in.-dia. threaded
rods (not supplied by Chief Manufacturing) First, secure the rods to
a structural cross brace in the ceiling. Insert the rods through the
three holes on the top side of the lift housing, or through the holes
of optional brackets SMA-651, and secure them to the housing
using two jam nuts (one inside, one outside). See Fig. 3.
CAUTION: For smooth and reliable operation, the lift must be
installed square and parallel in all dimensions. Avoid stressing
or twisting the lift at any time during installation.
Install the lift using threaded rods:
1.
With the lift in the fully retracted position, remove the closure
panel from the bottom of the lift.
2.
If you are using the SMA-651, install it now.
3.
Insert the 3 threaded rods through the top of the lift or
SMA-651.
4.
Using nuts and washers, secure the lift to the threaded rods.
Finish the suspended ceiling:
1.
Cut the grid to fit the perimeter of the lift and insert it into the
side channel of lift (the side channel of the lift will support the
weight of the ceiling grid and tiles).
2.
If using the SMA-620, see the SMA-620 instructions and
install them now.
3.
Cut surrounding ceiling tile to appropriate size.
4.
Make sure the unit is level, square, parallel and there is no
stress applied to the box (chassis).
5.
Using the test push button, carefully operate the lift all the way
up and down to be sure the clearances are adequate. Be prepared to stop the lift immediately if the lift begins to sound
labored or one side begins to travel slower.
6.
Replace surrounding ceiling tile.
7.
With lift at least partway open, remove four screws securing
ceiling tile retainer on bottom of tray (see Figure 4) and
remove ceiling tile retainer.
8.
Cut ceiling tile to fit inside ceiling tile retainer [include grid
pieces if necessary (see Figure 5)] and install ceiling tile (grid)
by sliding it into the open end of the ceiling tile retainer.

11. After installing the lift, use the test push button to carefully
operate the lift all the way up and down to be sure the clearances are adequate. Be prepared to stop the lift immediately
if the lift begins to sound labored or if one side or the other side
begins to travel slower.
12. To maintain plenum rating, seal any openings in the lift housing (except joist tabs) using foil tape.
Installation in a Wood Framework (or Side-Mounted to Joists)
A suitable framework must be constructed to support the lift in the
ceiling. Refer to for dimensions of the lift. The lift housing has
mounting tabs to assist in side-mounting the lift to the ceiling joists
or otherwise securing it to a wood framework.
The ideal lift installation time is after the sheetrock has been
installed, but before the sheetrock has been mudded or finished.
1.
Remove the closure panel from the bottom of the lift to gain
access to the front and back mounting holes.
CAUTION: For smooth and reliable operation, the lift must be
installed square and parallel in all dimensions. Avoid stressing
the lift at any time during installation.
2.
Position the lift in the desired location, making sure the unit is
level, square, parallel and there is no stress applied to the box
(chassis).
3.
Secure the lift to the joists or wood framework. Drive at least
six 1/4 x1-1/4-in. lag screws through the mounting tabs around
the inside of the lift housing and mounting holes across the
back of the lift. There are 8 tab locations, three in each side and
two in one end, and 3 mounting hole locations across the back
of the lift (see Figure 6 and Figure 7). The lift requires support
on two opposing sides only.
