      The first picture is the lift in the parked position from the basement.

      Next is the view from the top of the stairs with the lift up.

      Detail of the 2" angle Iron rails and the Mounting brackets. All of the steel was from Horne Steel In Geneva, IL. They cut everything to length for me including the mounting brackets.

      The "circuit board" has 6 solenoids wired up to allow the winch circuit to remain energized as it moves up or down until it hits the limit switches.

      the hinged plywood board on the front activates the "down" limit switch and also has three copper strips mounted on it that function as contacts for the 12v charger and the "call button (doorbell button mounted to the upstairs door frame.

          I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.


            Thank you for the detailed pics and explanation. Seems straight forward enough. I'm already thinking of a couple of ways to improve it.
            How long have you been using yours and has there ever been a failure?
