I still can't believe how fast and easy this product was to install! I took the advice in the instructions and mounted the hardware to a 1x12 piece of lumber and then was able to secure the board to the ceiling. Much easier than trying to get the pulley brackets lined up with the ceiling joists! Took less than an hour start to finish and it works like a charm. Very pleased with the entire purchase experience. Great product, extremely low price and prompt shipping.
Quality surprise - I usually have to re-engineer products using better bolts and stronger frames . . . not this time. I was impressed by the high quality for the low price. It works extremely well. I think I'll probably buy more and give them as gifts for my friends.
Great product. It was easy to assemble. Our two bikes are no longer in our way,
I installed two of these and it took longer to find the studs that it did to install these. I was concerned about the ease of use, but the safety catch works exactly as advertised and my wife is able to use these without fear of dropping a bike.
Great product over all. the rope Provided was not heavy enough, but was adequate.
This lift is easy to install and is a great solution to clear up room in my garage.
I needed space in my golf cart garage. The bike hoist was the perfect solution. It freed up floor space at a low cost. The hoist was as exactly as described and easy to install. I would recommend this product as a solution to anyone needing to free up space. The product was delivered as promised.
Great price. Easy to install. Nice to get the bike out of the way when not in use. I agree with a previous review that the detail on threading the line could be more clear. Still not clear that I got it right but it's a minor issue.
Works great, I have an e-Bike that I keep in the garage, when it was not in use it was often in my way. No more, after taking a few minutes to easily install this hoist ceiling mount the bike is no longer in my way. Another great advantage is the bike tires are not sitting on the cement garage floor when the bike is not in use. I normally only use the bike on weekends and tires being stored on cement the tires will more rapidly lose air the when they are suspended in the air.
I highly recommend this Bike Lift to anyone who wants to reclaim the floor in the garage and not worry about the bike getting accidentally knocked over or bumped into my car, this lift is a good way to preserve the precious paint and finish on both your bike and car. If you want to give your garage a face lift make sure you start by giving your bike a lift.
My only comment is that rather then using the long heavy screws that came with the unit I used lag bolts for additional security. The supplied screws look like they may be strong enough to hold the weight of the bike but since my bike is an e-bike it weighs almost 50lbs and I elected to safe rather then sorry.
Price is so low that I was concerned about the quality of the product. But, it installs exactly as they say and solves my storage problem in a small garage. Good value at twice the price. Easy to use for my wife..
It was easy to install. Lifted the bike evenly and seems strong enough to hold it up.
Exactly as advertised, and priced FAR less than same item at local retail bike shops. Easy to mount per enclosed instructions. Only one minor issue having to do with positioning of included pull rope at the very end of the pulley trail. We're sending close-up photo to Discount Ramps with suggested minor modification of instruction sheet ....but we figured it out, Should not affect decision to buy this item. Especially useful for kid's medium size bikes .. they should love raising and lowering their own bikes as part of the bike-riding experience!.
This is a simple device that does the job at hand. Easy to install, there is documentation available on this site that shows exactly how to install it (check the more-info tab) http://cdnll.discountramps.com/images/art/bikelift.pdf. Getting the bike out of the way and in a safe spot made my day!
put screws into joists, thread the ropes and voia.... up go your bikes. No detail on how to thread rope, but its not that difficult to figure out
I purchased 5 and put them up alone, amazingly easy ...wish I had known about this product earlier. So easy to get our bikes up and down. My garage has room once now that the bikes are out of the way. Highly recommend!!!!
I purchased two Bike Cable Hoists. They arrived within three days, were easy to screw into the garage ceiling/truss and use. It's a very simple system. I wish i had thought of it and offered it for sale. I'm not sure why they charge $8 shipping for both (total $16). Seems like $8 should have been enough. Still a good value because you can't assemble a better system if you went to the hardware store and picked out the components yourself.
Better than advertised. Service was as good or better than Amazon. Price was very competitive. One improvement would be a better description of the contents. When ordering "1" I had to call to insure that meant a set of pulleys rather than just one pulley. If it stated "One kits contains 2 pulleys, 2 hooks, rope, cleat and wood screws."
Bought these to get the bikes out of the way. Easy to install and they work great. Even my 10 year old son can raise and lower his own bike.
Already had one, girlfriend bought bike to join me cycling. Sturdy product, easy to set up, well made. Keeps bicycles from interfering with walking space around cars.
Bought 2 of these to keep my bikes out of the way. They were easy to install and easy to use. Pulleys are built of sturdy material. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
really makes it easy to store my bikes when I don't have any more floor space and lots of ceiling space...
Might have to get a few more :)
I like this hoist because it is easy to install and easy to use. I already own two...and recently bought five more from Discount Ramps.com to clear up some more of the clutter in my garage.
The hoists sold by Discount Ramps.com are sturdy and can be used to hoist and store a variety of items beside your bicycles.
If there is a better easier to use and install bike hoist, I would like to see it. This installed easily and works very well. A great value for your money. I considered just making my own hoist. For the price, this is far better than anything I could have created.
I bought 2 of these lifts for my bike and my wife's bike. The first one took me about an hour to put up as I tried to figure how to hang them in my garage rafters. The second one took only 15 minutes to install. They work great and our bikes are out of the way.
