Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks
When raising the hoist, the lock or clicking sound that is the last to click that is the side that needs adjusting. Before you begin, make sure that the hoist is on the first set of locks. Hold the handle down so the pressure is off the pistons. Adjust the cable with a pair of vise grips on top of the cable( not on the threads). Use a pair of channel locks on the nut underneath. Turn until the cable is tight. Run the hoist to check if both clicks or locks work together. Do not over tighten the cable.
