The PBH-1R uses a pulley system that makes it easy to raise and lower bikes weighing up to 50 pounds. The system can be installed on ceilings as high as 14 feet, and the unique rope locking system ensures that the rope stays locked in place when not in use. Storing your bike off the floor not only protects your bike from damage, but it frees up valuable floor space, helping to keep your space tidy and better organized.
Installing the Racor PBH-1R is a breeze, and you can have it completed within a matter of minutes. The only tools necessary for installation are a Phillips head screwdriver, a drill with a 1/8" bit, a tape measure, and a stud finder (for ceilings with drywall). The easy-to-follow instructions will have your Ceiling-Mounted Bike Lift ready to go in just five easy steps.
Solid-Steel Construction for Durability
The PBH-1R is built to last. All of its included hardware is constructed from solid steel for maximum durability and toughness. The locking mechanism, pulleys, rope cleat, and lift mechanism offer smooth performance for years to come. The included 48-foot lift rope is also extremely durable, and it provides plenty of excess length for ceilings up to 14-feet high.
Easy Raising and Lowering with Minimal Effort
The PBH-1R makes it a breeze to raise and lower your bike from its ceiling-mounted position. The pulley system handles the brunt of the force, so it requires very little effort on your part. Simply hook the bike handlebar and seat to the included hooks and pull the lift rope to raise the bike to its ceiling-mounted storage position. With each pull, the locking mechanism locks into place to eliminate accidental drops. Store the excess rope on the included rope cleat to keep it nice and tidy.
The RacorPro PBH-1R Ceiling-Mount Bike Lift measures 10.24 x 5.12 x 3.5 inches (packaged) and weighs just 3.64 pounds (packaged). All included components feature a black finish.
What's in the Box
Two lift assemblies, two hook pulleys (one with locking mechanism), 48-foot rope, one rope cleat, 10 two-inch wood screws.

Although the instructions say to tie a stop knot in the rope and thread it through the pulleys and hooks before installation, it's easier not to do that until after you've installed the pulleys. (I did tie a knot in the rope and run it through the hole before I installed the first pulley, but that that turned out not to be necessary because there's enough clearance to push the rope through afterwards.)
Finally, I installed the cleats low enough to reach but high enough so people don't have to duck under the rope.
Like some of the other reviewers, one of my ropes was frayed. (The other one was fine.) I wrote an e-mail to Racor and a vice-president responded almost immediately. I received a replacement rope two days later. Awesome!
Conclusion: These lifts work very well, are easy to install, are reasonably priced, and are backed by excellent customer service.
to making it a quality product. It does sell for a cheap enough price that you can afford to swap in a high quality rope and some decent screws. To fit the brackets snuggly over a 2x joist, you'd need to shim it on either side. It also should be shimmed on the underside, because the nuts holding the pulleys prevent the brackets from fitting flush to the joist bottom. Without the bottom shims, stress is not distributed evenly. The whole design, in addition to the crappy screws, invites unsafe installations unless you make some corrections.
Installation was a pain because my place seems to have metal studs and a finished garage. My wood studs are about 4 feet apart -- ugh..
For the first unit I picked up some plywood and drilled it into 1 stud... then installed the unit on the plywood. 1 stud is plenty for a 20 lb bike.
For the other 2 units I purchased a larger piece of plywood and installed it into 4 studs. This time I measured and installed the units first - Much easier then trying to install the wood then the units! I highly recommend installing the hoist to the unit (without the rope) and then installing the wood!!
BTW.. the rope looks pretty weak.. but still holding up my scooters fine.
Had they used cable or something stronger I'd have given this 5 stars -- but for the price -- its a great value.
However, it's not a perfect system. As other reviews have noted, the screws that come with the kit are soft (I used 2 1/2" deck screws instead) and the rope doesn't appear to be of particularly high quality.
Also, the two claws do not rise evenly when lifting the cargo box (maybe this works better for bikes). So in order to actually lift the cargo box to the ceiling, I either need the help of another person to keep the box level or I have to sort of walk the box up by pushing one side up, pulling the rope a bit, pushing the other side up, pulling the rope again, and on and on. It's not really difficult to do, and it doesn't take that long, but it's a little bit annoying. (I have the sense that a better pulley system would rise evenly.)
About using the Racor PBH-1R to hang my cargo box:
I did a lot of research and read all the reviews on all the lifts available on Amazon. jt's images and notes about using this lift for his cargo box got me thinking that this system might work for me as well. Fortunately, I decided to contact jt before trying to hang the box as his photos in the listing show. jt initially lifted his box without straps, by placing the hooks under the front and rear lips of the cargo box. This had the advantage of lifting the box high against the ceiling. Unfortunately, it had the disadvantage of being relatively unstable, making it difficult to lift the box up. After he dropped the box once using this method, he decided to switch to hanging the box from straps.Read more ›
