Tech Tip: How to spot a vehicle using a laser spotting guide

Properly spotting a vehicle on the lift is the first step to a proper repair. Unfortunately, it can be a time-consuming step, even for experienced technicians, depending on the particular vehicle and lift combination. Pulling into the bay slowly while leaning out the door or window is not uncommon. Rotary Lift’s patent-pending Spotline laser spotting guide improves technician efficiency and productivity by making it easy to properly position a vehicle on the lift the first time, every time.

The Spotline laser can be installed on the top of the lift or elsewhere above the work area. It projects a straight green line directly into the middle of the vehicle service area when automatically activated by its motion sensor. Simply center the line on the vehicle hood and dash while pulling into the bay. Spotline makes backing out of the bay just as easy. Originally introduced as part of Rotary Lift's Shockwave package for two-post and SmartLift inground lifts, Spotline is now available in a retrofit kit that’s compatible with most lifts, regardless of brand.
