Keep work spaces clear and neatly organized with help from this innovative Racor ladder lift. The unit makes it easy to store any type of ladder overhead--no need to take up precious floor space or storage space along side walls. Preserve that parking space, project area, or storage area for home-improvement projects by securing your ladder safely overhead.
The ladder lift uses a rope and pulley system, as well as a fixed hook, that is mounted to ceiling joists. Once all components are properly installed (some assembly required), simply place the top of the ladder onto the fixed hook, then securely attach the strap to the bottom rung of the ladder, and pull the rope. The low end of the ladder will gracefully elevate up to the ceiling until the ladder has arrived at its horizontal, suspended, storage position.
The pulleys and the fixed hook do most of the work, making an 80-pound ladder feel like it's only 10 pounds--an 8:1 mechanical advantage. A unique locking mechanism holds the rope securely in place to prevent accidental release.
When it's time to use the ladder--whether painting the house, cleaning the gutters, or making a second-story repair--pulling the ladder down from storage is a snap. Simply unlock the rope and slowly lower it, allowing one end of the ladder to smoothly descend to the ground. Unhook the other end, and you're all set.
The ladder lift features durable steel construction, and it works on ceilings up to 12 feet high and accommodates ladders up to 150 pounds. Fasteners to install the ladder lift into ceiling joists come included.
Note: Ladder not included.
