the mounting tool is usually for running the carriage only onto the rail and then adding the chair once its all secured onto the rail, on the oe loading tool there are two holes where you insert nylon rods to hold the carriage in place, once the loading tool is located into the rail, you hold the carriage back, pull the downside rod out and gentle allow the carriage to run onto the rail until the rack and pinion meet, then you use the remote to power it onto the rail
majority of the time I pull the lift off the rail, I remove the stops and charge ramp, grab hold of the seat, run the lift up till the pinion disengages, then lift the unit off the rail and lower it onto a dust sheet, customers get shirty about grease on their carpets!
to install it one arm round the chair, grab hold of the carriage underneath the upside safety edge and guide it onto the rail, once the rollers are located, you allow the lift to run onto the rail till the pinion gear engages the rack, flick the down button and guide it onto the rail, just start stop start stop till your happy it’s all lined up ok and away you go…â€¦ its not as difficult as it sounds, there are far worse lifts to take on and off the rail!
