“I am a caretaker for my father and this lift made it possible for me to take him to go out to eat and meet with friends and family. He now feels a sense of freedom and enjoys trips big and small.”

“My niece spends every summer with us, so we invested in the AL500HD so we can take her on trips to the theme parks and beaches. She loves the adventure and the freedom!”

Factors to Consider before Making a Decision

While hitch-mounted lifts require little-to-no work while operating the lift, there are certain steps that must be completed in order to ensure your mobility device is secured for travel.

  • Walking from the front to the rear of the vehicle and back again
  • Standing up to three minutes while the lift operates
  • Steer or push the mobility device on/off the platform
  • Fold down the seat back of the mobility device or scooter tiller until it is in its most compact position
  • Insert the key and rotate it 90 degrees to turn on and activate the lift
  • Apply pressure to hold the up/down toggle switch while the lift operates
  • For Retractors: Connect the hook to location on mobility device and pull strap end or turn knob to increase tension (single and dual-hand retractors available)
