    hmmm, just be sure to aim the car towards which ever neighbor you do not like. That way when it brakes free it will roll into there house or cars or fence or pool or mail box etc...

      I build me a six foot ramp out of 2x2's and particle board before I'd buy one of those.
      I'd even use glue to assemble my ramp.

        Yes it does, They were putting pins into the mechanism to lock it up

        I could be wrong, but it looks like the pin locks the height - not the pivot mechanism.

          doesn`t look like much of a help to me , brake jobs maybe , trans. job -no, 2'' headers on an A body - no--------possible death upon use-maybe---------- The older I get , the more I wish I had a hyd. lift , but not that one !

            Something tells me that a fulcrum based lift was used when the Egyptians built the pyramids. Very smart back then. Then they lost some slaves due to accidents. As man got smarter, and Darwin explained man's idiocy, man made proper lifts, stands and chocks.
            Give it a shake before you get under it. Oh, and make sure your wife hasn't left her purse in the car to retrieve while you're under there.

              That is how I see it also. I am wondering if the pins in the pivot lock it in a chosen position. I will let you know when I get it

                I always give the car a good shake before getting under it. Years ago, the car fell off the jacks twice. So I built cribbing to put under the tires.
                But I am too old and crippled to slide under the cars, so this should be great.

                I hope
                I will tell you one thing. If this does work as advertised, it will be the best $50 I have ever spent

                    Might be safe with four good jackstands.

                    We use similar Dirt Car Lifts in the pits on race nights but they dont pivot.

                        I just saw it a couple hours ago. They only has so much inventory. They must have removed the item when it was sold out. I am speculating

                        They say they will ship within 24 hours. But that is not the case. Its been almost a week and no notice that they shipped mine

                            Y'alls cars' rocker panels aren't so rusted out, you can consider using OP's center pivot lift?

                            It's a scam. I bought a welder like that. Since I paid with Paypal, I got a full refund. I hope you used Paypal.

                            I did put it on a credit card. If needed I can file a claim with them. If I do not hear anything in the next week, I will file a claim

                            Yep, it's an obvious scam site.
