Racor PHL-1R Ceiling Storage Lift

racor_ceiling_storage.jpg

Last week we reviewed the Overhead Crate Storage System which we think is pretty cool. It utilizes the space in between the joist bays of your garage or basement and fills them with easy to access storage containers. Now we want to call your attention to a different larger method for stowing stuff up high: the Racor Ceiling Storage Lift.

This one is a lot bigger than the Overhead Crate and takes a much higher ceiling to use. It's basically a platform on a lift system that can be raised and lowered at your convenience. The 4x4 platform can hold 250-pounds. In other words it can hold all of your Christmas decorations, all of your Halloween decorations, your kid's artwork that you refuse to get rid of, and the canoe that you never use.

The lift is operated by a hand crank or it can be operated by a drill. The max on the raise/lower is 8-feet.

The lift is priced at around $150. Seems like a fair price to us.

I think it's meant for really tall garage ceilings where height isn't too much of an issue. My little garage couldn't handle it for the reasons you're saying (which is why I'm so fond of the Overhead Crate system).

the max height seems a bit low considering the product. you need a really high ceiling to put boxes on top of it and still have headroom, but then you cant lower it all the way to the floor.
