3 Car Hoist Before a car is moved onto the hoist Make sure there is nothing on the ramps or platforms Make sure the center lifts are all the way down Walk all the way around and make a physical inspection of the hoist

4 Car Hoist Physical inspection of the hoist Check that all the bolt holding the hoist to the ground look undamaged Check that the metal cables in the 4 posts look tight Check that the power cord is plugged in Again make sure the area is clear of hazards both on the ground and above the hoist Look for anything unusual

5 Car Hoist If you noticed any physical damage during your inspection DO NOT USE IT!! REPORT IT!! PUT A SIGN ON IT!!

6 Car Hoist Before a car is moved onto the hoist –Make sure you have all the tools you expect to need for the job –Make sure you have all the parts you expect to need for the job –Make sure you have 4 wheel chalks (one for each tire)

7 Car Hoist Have your instructor bring the car into the shop and onto the Hoist Once the car is on the hoist check and make sure it is centered correctly (walk around the car and check) Place the wheel chalks in front of the front wheels and behind the back wheels Make sure wheel chalks are tight against the wheels

8 Car Hoist If the car has a StandardTransmission Make sure the car is in gear Make sure the Emergency Brake is on If the car has a Automatic Transmission Make sure the car is in park Make sure the Emergency Brake is on

9 Car Hoist If you will be working in the engine compartment make sure the hood is opened before you lift the car this will allow more light in the work area

10 Car Hoist Working with a buddy make sure the area around the car is clear. You should both be standing at opposite corners of the hoist Announce that the hoist is being raised Call out ALL CLEAR DO NOT operate the hoist until you hear your Buddy echo ALL CLEAR

11 Car Hoist Using the controls press the black button on the motor to raise the car Watch to make sure all 4 corners are going up at the same rate Raise the car to a safe working height –if you will be working on the wheels raise the car so the platforms are at waist hieght center jack will lift wheels to chest height –If you are working under the car raise the car so you can walk under the car without banging your head

12 Car Hoist As the hoist is going up you will hear loud clicking sounds. These sounds are the lock clicks Once you have raised the car to the desired height you must go a little higher until you hear the clicking sound Once you hear the clicking sound go about 4 extra inches

13 Car Hoist Now push on the silver lever with the black knob At this time you will hear a shsh sound of air The hoist should come down and the platform arms should rest on the post rests If the hoist is not coming down evenly at all 4 corners STOP and go back up again until the hoist is level What happened is that all 4 of the platform arms had not gone past the 4 post rests of the same height

14 Car Hoist Again raise the car until you are past the desired height and repeat the lowering technique. If the hoist does not come to a level rest on all 4 post rests raise the hoist and call your instructor over. DO NOT LEAVE THE HOIST AREA If the hoist has come down and has stopped going down it would mean the platform arms are resting on the 4 post rests and the car and hoist are in a safe working state
