The drive belt attaches to the top of the lift container with screws that come with the kit (Image 1).
Thread the belt through the series of pulleys (Image 2). Make sure it is tight, but that you can adjust the lift basket up and down.
To transition from the belt to a cable, cut the belt with shears since it has metal wires in the belt.
First, slide on a cable clamp. Then, slide the ring of the cable over the belt, fold the belt in half and crimp the cable clamp with a channel lock.
Determine where you want the elevator to stop so you can install the stop switch. Install one on the top rail and one on the bottom (Image 1).
Connect the wires for the stop and clip the wires to the wall so that they are out of the way (Image 2). Then, plug the unit in.
