Hello, my name is Ben, I run the Northern California Division of Gizmo Custom Systems. Weíre a Custom Installation & AV Company located in both Northern and Southern California. Iíve been an av and electrical installer for almost 20 years. While we keep a large crew in LA, in the bay area, I keep a small crew, and prefer to work on my own whenever possible. Several years ago, in between hiring helpers, I thought up a contraption that would let me install large TVs on my own. It was so specific and would meet such a small market, I didnít think anything like it could be made without a huge amount of trouble. Needless to say, I was ecstatic when I found your product online a few months back. We ordered one immediately. Iíve since used it for 3 installs, and have shipped it to a remote site, which allowed me to do a remote install on my own without the expense of bringing a helper. Iíve attached images of the last 75Ē TV I hung completely on my own. I actually used the lift to remove it from a wall where it had been hung previously, rolled it to another floor in the same building, and re-installed. No helper, that is, except for the TV Lift. The winch is as smooth and strong as anyone could ask for, and it holds any amount of weight with confidence. Simply moving the assembled tool around lets you feel that this is a device that will handle anything you can throw at it. It allows finite adjustment, enough to easily lower a TV onto an articulating arm. Better still, it allows a single individual to service large TVs that are installed on flat mounts, without having to completely remove them from the wall and be disconnected.
My Grandfather was a farmer, and my Father was skilled with just about every tool you could imagine, so I learned early on that with the right tool, you can do anything. This piece of equipment is a marvel. It is incredibly well made, expertly planned out, and exudes quality and durability. Everything you want from a good tool. Iíve also used it for larger installs of TVs in the 80Ē range, where even with a helper, it becomes challenging to hold the display safely while making final connections, and getting it safely onto the wall. This unit takes all the hard parts out of even multiple man installations. We plan to purchase a 2nd unit soon for our Southern California branch, and I expect to continue to find new ways to apply it usefully in the field. This tool should be standard equipment for any serious AV installer, and it will always be in my tool lineup moving forward.
