      Questions & Answers

      Have a Question?

      Ask a Question
      • Do you guys make an extension for the cord that connects the motor to the wall switch?

        No we do not.  To extend the length you would need an electrician to splice in a longer length of cord.

      • What is the distance from ceiling to load bar at its highest point?

        Approx 14 inches

      • Can you send me installation instructions so I can make sure I can install this in my Metal garage and I have the proper framing to mount this system?

        PDF link is below, however it is not designed for installation in a metal garage.  You would have to come up with your own hardware to complete the install

      • How far apart are the bike storage hooks and can this apparatus reliably store 8 bikes?

        The bike storage hooks are not fixed to the lift bar.  You can place them wherever you like.  The key factor is the weight of the total load, so if you have 8 bikes that weigh less than220 pounds, then yes, it canlift them no problem.

      • My garage ceiling is 15.5' above the floor and is on a 3:12 pitch. I plan to install perpendicular to the slope so that the ends of the lift are at the same elevation. I am thinking of using a ripped, beveled board to bring the mounting surface horizontal for the lift to attach to. Do you know of customers who have successfully done this and how wide and long of a surface the lift and motor need for installation? Also, I see that one of the lifts that you sell uses cables (Proslat) and one straps (Garage Gator) but the are priced the same and all other features are similar. What are the pros and cons of straps vs. cables?

        No, I have no knowledge about customers who have builttheir own mounting surface.  I have spoken to several about it, but none have ever gotten back to me about how they went about it.

        As far as photos of the lifts go, any pics showing cables are just old photos to show th elift in a particular configuration.  No cables are used any more in any of the lifts.

      • I have an 18’ ceiling is there an upgrade for taller ceilings

        No there is not one that we provide, but some people have built there own mounting surface that extends down to the required height.

      • Do you have local installers

        No we do not.  We suggest that you check with the contractor desk at your local home improvement store like Lowe's.  They normally maintain a list of local contractors.  This is a very simple install so it should not be difficult to find someone.

      • I have a angled ceiling in my garage I would like to install this in. About 12ft for one bar and 15ft for the other. Will this work?


        This system is designed to be installed on ceilings that are horizontal to the floor.

      • My wife and I need a way to store our bikes in the garage and out of the way. We don’t need the ability to store 8 bikes. Do you have a system that accommodates perhaps 3 bikes? I don’t have a space large enough to handle the 8 bike system.

        The Garage Gator bike lift is adjustable from the full length 9ft version down to a shorter 6 ft version.  You just install the lift in the shorter configuration when you receive it.

      • My garage is almost 17ft. tall. Is there a way to order on with longer cables?

        No there is not any way to get  longer straps.

      • i have a 11'-4" finished ceiling height in my garage and my bikes are all adult male bikes and i am 6' tall, when the GG8220 is up in the full height stored position, how low will the lowest level of my hung bikes be? if i do this system i will need to install the system above my full sized pick up truck and i need to know if my truck will fit under the lowest portion of a hanging bike. the height of the top of my truck is 6'-3" above the finished garage floor. thanks dan

         The bar is about 20 inches from the top of the ceiling, when wounded all the way up!

         Assuming an average adult bike is about 40 inches from the bottom of the seat to the floor, You would simply add 40 inches to the 20 inches from the bar to the ceiling, you'd be looking at about 60 inches from the ceiling to the bottom of the bike. If the customer would like to measure the bottom of the seat to the floor and add 20 inches for the bar, he'd get the exact measurement!


        In your situation I do not think it will work.  The measurements given by tech support do not allow for any out of balance condition that may cause one end of the bike to hang lower than the other.

        In their scenario: 60 inches for the bike and lift bar + your 6ft 3in vehicle = 11ft 3 in

        That is cutting it close.

      • How far is the bar from the ceiling when raised to max height?

        Approx. 20 inches

      • I’m confused. I have 14’ high ceilings. The description says 8’ to 15’ high ceilings but the cable is only 9’? So how does a 9’ cable handle 14’?

        My apologies, that was data left over from the previous design.  The new design of the Garage Gator bike lift uses straps, not cables.  The straps are 12ft in length.  When attached to a 15 ft ceiling they will lower the lift bar down 12ft. to approx. 3 ft off the floor which is where you would attach your bikes.

        Please refer to the diagram in the picture scroll bar below the main picture.

      Did not install yet having garage painted and the floor done hope to install soon

      Saves room in the garage

      The lift is great, the instructions could be more detailed. I like the remote but it's a little bit bigger than it needs to be. One of the bar attachments came broken and I am waiting for a replacement which is frustrating but overall I'm happy with the product
