It is the customer's responsibility to follow the Operation and Installation Manual to assure the lift is installed, commissioned and operated according to manufacturer's recommendation.
Failure to read and understand the information below regarding the CORRECT OPERATION of the Atlas® KwikBay locking system may result in damage to the lift. The Atlas® Kwik Bay mid-rise is designed to QUICKLY raise a vehicle to a desired height, perform the necessary service work, and then lower the vehicle to the ground WITHOUT engaging the pneumatic positive lock bar system. The pneumatic positive locking system will automatically engage in the unlikely event of a hydraulic failure while the vehicle is in the air. If the vehicle is to be stored on the raised lift platforms for an extended period of time then the pneumatic positive lock system needs to be activated (by the user).
When the vehicle service work or vehicle storage time has been completed and the operator wants to the lower the vehicle to the ground (or to a lower locked position), please follow these important steps and remember: IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT THE LOCK BARS BE COMPLETELY DISENGAGED WHEN THE VEHICLE IS BEING LOWERED TO THE GROUND. FAILURE TO FULLY DISENGAGE BOTH LOCK BARS DURING THE LOWERING PROCESS WILL CAUSE FRAME DAMAGE TO THE LIFT.
