Summerlift™ is a significant breakthrough in lift & lower technology.
Summerlift is a low-voltage high torque electrically powered lift designed for near-silent raising and lowering of up to 200 pounds. Precise height positioning, automatic dynamic braking and uneven load management are just the beginning.
Summerlift™ was designed and developed using the highest reliability drive with engineered, geared, power transmission to produce extremely smooth load raising and lowering to move even sensitive equipment.
To energize, turn key switch to the right. To test, touch the rocker switch control in one direction and then the other. NOTE: the Summerlift straps must be fully unwound prior to installation of the lift platform. The Summerlift unit arrives with all four belts fully extended. AFTER TESTING, BE CERTAIN TO RETURN THE BELTS TO THEIR FULLY EXTENDED POSITION PRIOR TO COMMENCING INSTALLATION.
To test a remote control - equipped Summerlift touch “A” and then “B” on the “clicker”.

Components that came with the Summerlift
The two long screws are for fastening the key switch
The short screws are for the included strap retainers
The magnet and stainless steel screw are for the upper limit switch
The Magic Sliders are to permit the lift platform to slide up and down within your cabinetry. Two are inserted on the front face of the Summerlift platform; two are fixed to the outside of each side and back of the carrier cabinetry that raises and lowers with the platform.
1.The outer shell to which the lift straps are fastened and,
2.The Carrier which has two sides and a back – and is fastened to the lift platform.
The carrier is secured to the lift platform. Note that the lifting belts exit the lift under the rollers and pass upwards along the sides of the carrier. The belts are secured to the inside of the outer shell.
Installation into existing cabinetry (modifying a cabinet)
Installing the Lift
Verify that the lift platform is level.
Pull one strap at a time straight up above the center of each roller and secure the strap (temporary) with a short staple (1/4”), tape etc..
Verify that the centerline distance between the straps at the top is the same as the center-to-center distance between the rollers at the bottom!
On a strap by strap basis, apply upward tension until by “feel” the platform starts to be lifted – gently does it!. Fasten each strap in turn when the tensions are approximately even. NOTE at this point, we insert a ¼” staple through the strap to secure it for thenext step.
With minimal weight on the platform, carefully raise the Summerlift until it reaches the desired height.
Verify that as it comes up, there is constant contact with the front cabinet face and the rising platform. Check to see that the belts remain in the center of the rollers.
When it reaches the desired height, stop its rise and verify that the platform is level from left to right and from front to back.
NOTE:IF THE SUMMERLIFT HAS BEEN operated without activating the upper and lower limit switches, YOU MAY FIND THAT RAISING THE SWITCH LEVER LOWERS THE UNIT INSTEAD OF RAISING . . . To Correct: Hold the “UP” lever-- the platform lowers - - continue to hold the “UP” lever - - after a brief pause, the platform will raise and the controls will have been corrected.
Install the upper limit switch magnet by first determining its proper position.
For remote equipped Summerlifts, extend (unwind) the remote antenna wire up the inside face of your cabinet and secure with staples or tape.Install and test upper limit switch. Then Install and test lower limit switch – adjusting lower limit switch so platform rests/stops in contact with bottom of cabinet or cleats.
