Completely updated and expanded second edition of the world’s best-selling car lift safety manual.

Over the last 35 years, millions of students, professional technicians, and at-home mechanics have learned best practices for safely using vehicle lifts from ALI’s exclusive Lifting It Right safety manual. The new second edition has been updated with technical input from the industry’s leading lift manufacturers and ALI experts to include the latest information, new photos, and illustrations in an easy-to-use format.

Lifting It Right covers safe operation and basic maintenance of the seven types of vehicle lifts commonly used in North America: inground lifts, two-post lifts, multi-post runway lifts, parallelogram lifts, scissors lifts, low-/mid-rise lifts and mobile columns. It is a companion to and reinforces the safe lifting practices presented in ALI’s industry-standard Lifting It Right online course.

Lifting It Right reviews how to properly lift and lower a vehicle, prepare the service bay, maintain load stability, and take care of a vehicle lift.
