FAQ

Vertical Lifts

Why doesn’t my lift stay up?
If the winch doesn’t click going up, the winch is wound backwards. Clockwise: to wind up. Counter-Clockwise: to wind down.

The winch needs a load to activate the brake. An empty lift may not stay up.

Can I put the winch on either side of my lift?
No. But if you want to move the lift from one side of your dock to the other, simply turn your lift 180° at the same time. It doesn’t matter which end of the lift you drive onto.
Will this lift work in shallow water?
This lift will operate in 9 inches of water, pluss the hull draft of your boat.
Why do the rear cables of the lift appear slack? Is this okay?
The rear cables are only used to keep the cradle level. These cables only go into tension when the load weight of the watercraft is not centered. Then, only the cable on the heavy side is working and will appear tight. The cable on the light side is doing no work, so remains loose. If you tighten these cables they will bind and make the lift hard to crank.

Can the winch be mounted on either side of the lift?
On a cantilever, yes. On a vertical you can rotate the lift 180%deg;. It doesn’t matter which end you enter the lift.
Why does my jet lift crank down hard?
Winch shaft & wheel need grease.

Wheel needs to thread on and off the shaft to activate and release the brake.
