Another use for Pool Noodles!
Permalink  
 


Spent $2 at the Dollar Store on some pool noodles, cut them up, and now my noggin is no longer in danger when the ramps are on the lift and it's up in the air.  Don't ask me how I know...clonk

When I have my lift about 24" high, I take the ramps off, spin them 180 and shove them behind the tires. Never hit my head on them that way.

These ramps are about 50 pounds apiece,  so a pain to take on and off, especially since I'm putting cars on and off a lot while working on them and not just storing them. 

 

I like Hank's aluminum ramps. Much lighter and easier to put on and take off.

I leave my aluminum ramps on the floor, drive on and off, they don't move around.

Eastwood has the aluminum ramps, I would think you could find them locally for less. I got mine from the guy at what was then Car Craft for $275. Well worth the investment.
Putting the ramps behind the tires works well for storage not so well if you are working in that area.

Yep, mine are steel too, but if you are moving cars often, they can be a pain.
I like Bob's idea, once the car is on, just slip them off the rail and work around, or push them aside. Mine only get used a few times a year, so they stay on the runways.
