Not only is our Platform Lift powerful, useful, and well built; it is also extremely safe so you don’t have to worry about accidents occurring when using the Platform Lift. A panagraphing movement is created with the lift arms and control rods. Equal spacing of the hinge points allows the platform to remain level while raising and lowering the lift. SeaLift has also designed a patented lockout that occurs when the pin joint between the lower and upper link passes beyond the plane connecting the hinge points. While it is in this position, downward force from the weight of the platform or cargo will cause a reaction force in the lockout direction. This will prevent the platform from falling in the event of a hydraulic power loss.
Our Platform Lift also includes four stainless steel tie-down straps and four folding pad eyes to secure a dinghy or personal water to the custom Swim Platform. The SeaLift Cradle Lift includes 4 tie-down straps to secure it to the cradle. Properly securing the tender while stowed will prevent the tender from falling off the swim platform or cradle and possibly causing damage to the SeaLift, tender or transom of the boat. With these safety features in place, your mind can rest easy that your boat and your Platform Lifts are safe and secure.
Other safety features of our SeaLift units are that they are all equipped with inline electrical breaker units, an emergency handle for the manual operation of the SeaLift, and a hardwired remote control to use if the key fob remote controls are inaccessible or it the batteries need to be replaced. These safety features allow you to instantly control or stop movement of your SeaLift units if any problem arises. SeaLift ensures the safety of our products and the safety features available are designed to keep you and your family safe.
