All hoists come with a comprehensive step-by-step installation guide which allows easy assembly by one person. Guides for each hoist can also be downloaded from this website under the product section. All hoists are designed to be installed inside a garage or workshop. Installation outdoors will void the warranty as none of the components are designed to be in wet or extremely humid conditions. Only the two post hoists are required to be anchored to the floor. Four post parking hoists do not require anchoring unless floor slope is greater than 1/8” per foot. If the hoist is to be anchored to a floor which has infloor heating, the routing of the heating system must be known to make sure it is not damaged when the anchors are driven into the floor.
