        x2.

        I've always wanted to rig up some kind of platform using climbing gear & skip on the 5-figure elevator costs... never thought to use counterweights though.

        good find.

          That's slick, and you never have to worry about power failures.

            I just had an awful (awful funny) thought. I have a friend in that's weighs a good 150 + more than me. Hope he doesn't get on the lift without warning.
            Stupidity ain't illegal, but it sure is inconvenient.

              Very elegant and simple. I always wished there was also a lift not electrically powered to get in a minivan, like you just need to help yourself up a bit and the rest of the work would be done by some well adjusted gas springs.

                    Very nice!!!

                    To make it so you would not need to "pull" yourself up, there could be a water 'assist'. turn the valve to add water/weight, turn it again to loose water/weight.

                      Here's another cool elevator product. http://www.decklift.com/
                      It's not as cool as the guy in England's that I posted first but it's easy to see how it works. I'm going to make something along the same lines to replace the stairs to my basement.

                        Not bad. Though I think the green house/door setup on the second page of the brochure is looking for trouble.

                              I like that counterweight design. And adjusting with water ballast is cleaver too.
