I love my bend-pak scissor lift, and use it on the testarossa and 914 all the time. But I do question their safety. The locking mechansim seems quite secure, but I always worry that some fluke accident might happen and the lift collapses, or the car tilts backwards. I just don't want my obituary to read "Moron squashed by Ferrari." I suspect that's what the local news paper would print . Anyone have any safety tips? I was thinking that if I could get some of those old metal milk crates, I could stack them up under the rear tires, so if the car falls (earthquake, whatever), it would at least fall forward and not onto me. I usually put some jacks under where I think the wheels would sit if the lift collapsed, to give me a safety margin. But honestly, I hate working under the thing if no one else is home. I figure that if something bad happens, at least someone is around to help...or document my last will and testament . The testarossa is such a big tail heavy car, it just seems "unbalanced." The 914 is really not an issue - its so small compared to the footprint of the lift... Seriously though, what safety measures do you guys take? I thought some cinder blocks would work really well, but I dont want to be dragging 10 or so of those around... Lately, the only time I can work on the car is when I am home alone... I hate thinking that one of my kids might run into the garage and get hurt.
