Lift Safety Legs

Devices built into automotive lifts to protect workers in event the system’s hydraulic system should fail. 

As auto mechanics work beneath cars elevated on lifts the lifts are raised through a hydraulic system that operates on air pressure. A sudden malfunction might cause the lift to drop. In such event, safety legs-installed in the bottom portion of the superstructure and engaged each time the lift rises high enough-prevent the car-laden lift from dropping to floor level.
