MY “AHA” MOMENT
My “AHA” moment happened shortly after I purchased a two post hoist to lift vehicles. I knew that other people in the automotive profession had to be having the same issue and wanted to get my idea out there to help others.

THE BIG IDEA
For years I had worked on the ground with jacks and jack stands. Tires are heavy and difficult to install back onto the car. Sitting down, I could roll the tire to me and lift only a short distance already at chest height. With a hoist, I would have to remove the rim and tire at chest level and put it on the ground near the hoist, then bend over to lift the rim and tire back to chest level to easily install the tire. My idea gets the tire off the ground and at chest level for pain free, easy removal and installation.

WHY MY IDEA IS BETTER THAN THE REST
My idea is better than the rest because it’s universal for any two post hoist, which is the most common in a mechanic shop. It’s easily removable when not needed and easily stored for easy access when it is needed. It also solves many issues within the shop that tires on the ground create. It will also improve the ergonomics and potential for injury in the mechanic shop environment.

THE SKY’S THE LIMIT
With funding, I will be able to move forward with securing patents and licensing. I will also be able to put finishing touches on the design and begin full time production to get my product on the market to begin helping others with the physical stresses of their jobs.
