  • Scale for lift

    Hi, I tried searching the forum for the existing thread I remember reading, with no luck, but I'm interested in buying a scale to be able to weigh myself, but having a Molift 150, I'm not surehow/where I should attach the scale. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

      That is going to be tough. My Molift gives me enough lift to get in and out of my chair but if I added a scale like I use on my ceiling lift it wouldn't lift me up enough. Here is my setup.

        One like this can be detached from the lift easily when not using it to get weight, so does not interfere in the lift functions. The ones from the lift companies are easily 2-3X the price of this one:

            How do you attach it on the Molift though?

              Do you have the 4-point spreader bar on your Molift? Not sure how easy that is to remove. Hopefully someone else with that lift will respond. You may have to use a Molift scale.

                Yes. There doesn’t seem to be a place to detach/attach the scale.

                  You'd have to remove the spreader bar and use a shackle to make those connections. Or leave the spreader on and rig up some nylon straps to hang the scale. You probably wouldn't be able to use the four hooks on the spreader to do that because then you might not have enough height.

                      You would spend as much for a Molift scale as you would for the Lilypad scale. Perhaps this would be a better option unless you have easy access to a wheelchair scale at a local hospital or rehab center:
