We love it when clients come up with new and inventive ways to use our products. But there’s a limit to what even the best TV lifts can do. Here are 3 things you should not do with your TV lift:
1. Pimping Your Ride
Lowriders that can bounce and hop as they cruise the streets are totally dope. So are our TV lifts. However, we don’t recommend using a TV lift to make your car lift or scrape. Of course, you can install a TV lift in a car for other purposes (as you can see in the photo above).
2. DIY Foundation Repair
Our lifts are strong. But they aren’t meant for certain home improvement applications. For example, you shouldn’t try to jack up your house with a TV lift so you can fix your pier and beam foundation. You won’t lift your house – but you might succeed in punching a hole in the floor if your floorboards are rotted!
3. Clown Dunking
No carnival or fundraising event would be complete without a dunk tank. But our lifts operate too smoothly to deliver the sudden splash you want when someone hits the target (see what we mean in this YouTube video). Plus, they aren’t designed for immersion in water. Instead, use a TV lift and a flat screen for mobile signage at your next event.
All joking aside, it’s a great idea to chat with our service team if you are planning an unusual implementation of our TV lifts. They’re surprisingly adaptable since the mechanism is robust and mechanically streamlined. We just want to make sure you have the best possible experience with your TV lift project.
