Using the end of the jack handle, turn the release valve clockwise until tight (do not overtighten). Insert the jack handle into the pump receiver and operate the pump until the desired height is attained. Lowering using the end of the jack handle, slowly turn the release valve counterclockwise until the load begins to lower. There is never any reason to turn the release valve more than 2 full turns counterclockwise. Caution heavier loads will lower very quickly, use extra caution when turning the release valve to lower the load. Do not lift heavier objects than specified on lift. Do not break hydraulic pump, charges are raised when this happens. Never allow an inexperienced person to operate this equipment. Never stand under the load.
