Thread: Home made Ghetto elevator for Cheap

  1. #11
    I thought about doing something like this, but never got up the nerve! Good job.
    I did hang a hoist and trolley from Horrible Fright from an I-beam on the ceiling of my wife's bedroom, and used that, along with the spreader bar and sling from a Hoyer lift, to transfer her between bed and chair.

    Best homemade elevator I have seen. Like others have said, make sure what your are doing is SAFE.

    Great idea this, definitely get that tackle fixing nice and solid.

    Hey maybe have some sort of shock safe base, like on a lift. You know some big old springs or something under a panel in the bottom floor. Might stretch expense though. Back up tackle a very good idea!
