Most of these negative comments were related to the supplied mounting screws. The screws are typical Asian-made hardware, not the best in the world - but the screws supplied are not defective. With the proper drive tool, they can be easily used. They are Pozidrive screws, I added an image to the photo gallery to illustrate how a Pozidrive screw is identified. These can be driven by a Phillips driver, but it requires care to properly align the driver with the screw drive recess. If the driver is allow to move off center to an angle while apply drive torque, the bit will easily "cam out."
To successfully use the supplied screws, a proper screwdriver must be used. Most people, myself included, do not own Pozidrive tools. I used a #3 Phillips bit in a cordless drill/driver and had no trouble with the screws. However, if you're not comfortable with this, or don't have a #3 Phillips driver, then it's easy enough to go to the local hardware store and buy some screws for under a dollar.
As to the operation of the hoist after getting it installed, it works great. The bicycle raises fairly evenly (stays level) and the rope catch holds it securely in place once the bike is up. As another reviewer mentioned, it works sort of like a venetian blind type device. It's still wise to also use the supplied rope cleat to tie-off the excess rope as an added safety measure.
I love the way this bicycle hoist works and am very happy with it.
Like others have said, the rope that comes with it is not of great quality. I will have to replace it before long. On the other hand they give you plenty of rope for a high garage ceiling. Our ceiling is about 10-1/2' and I had rope left over.
Unlike some comments I had no problem at all with the screws. I did pre-drill the holes using a bit about equal to the minor diameter of the thread and they went right in with help from a little paraffin.
The lifting hooks are a one size fits all arrangement. They fit the handle bars of my road bike just fine, but I had to improvise a bit to fit the seat, but it worked. If you have a bag mounted beneath your seat you might have to use the rear hooks on the front of the seat or both on one side. BTW - they are tempered steel and not that easy to bend.
Operation couldn't not be simpler. There might be a slight tendency to lift one end or the other but slight hand pressure on a tire levels things out. The clutch that keeps the rope from pulling back through during lifting seems to work well. For the money this lift system works just fine. I did subtract a star for the flimsy rope - they coulda' done better.
I mounted mine at right angles to the ceiling joists so I had to mount a 2' X 4' first and then attach the puley assemblies to that.
I ordered another one to hang my extension ladder as well.
