The Automotive Lift Institute Inc. announced the availability of the updated 2011 edition of its “Vehicle Lifting Points for Frame Engaging Lifts,” a quick-reference single-source manual for lifting point information as recommended by the vehicle manufacturers. The 60-page guide for domestic and imported cars and light trucks uses more than 200 undercarriage images to cover the most recent 20 model years.

For this new edition, the 2011 model year vehicles were added, some older images were revised and additional cautionary notes were provided in an effort to clarify pick-up point locations for shop owners, technicians and other guide users. ALI sponsors the guide annually as an industry service, utilizing data furnished exclusively for ALI by Chek-Chart Products, Motor Information Systems.

ALI says many companies and franchises now incorporate its lifting points guide and other safety materials as an integral component of their overall employee safety and training program.
