Now, owners of any brand of vehicle lift can add Spotline to the bay, thanks to a new retrofit kit that makes the laser spotting guide compatible with most in-ground and surface lifts.
The Spotline laser is installed on the top of the lift or elsewhere above the work area. It projects a green laser line directly in the center of the bay. The technician simply centers the line on the vehicle hood and dash while pulling in for perfect positioning every time. With Spotline, the driver does not have to lean out a window or a door to properly stage the vehicle.
Rotary Lift invented the Spotline motion-activated laser-spotting guide and introduced it as part of its Shockwave system in November 2011. Until now, it was only available on Shockwave-equipped two-post and SmartLift in-ground lifts. Spotline uses a Class III-a laser similar to those in laser pointers.
The Spotline retrofit kit works with two-post and four-post surface lifts, light-duty in-ground lifts, and heavy-duty parallelogram and scissor lift models. The kit comes complete with a Spotline laser assembly, motion sensor kit, mounting bracket and hardware adaptable to a ceiling, wall or top of a two-post lift.
A Rotary Authorized Installer can install the kit, or the customer can install it by following the instructions provided.
