5 Tips for DIY Installing 2 Post Lift Plus BONUS Time Lapse with Narration

I just got done installing a 2 post lift in my pole barn and felt the need to share some tips. This one is a ALI certified 10k capacity symmetric lift in my shop with 13′ ceilings (though it would have fit with 12′ ceilings). The second half of the video is a narrated time lapse of the whole install chock full of tips!

This is how I did it. Post your thoughts in the comments because I’m always up for learning! Hope you enjoy!
