Kevin,

In order to lower the lift, it must first be raised up off the stops, then a lever pulled that disengages the saftey locks, while at the same time, depressing another level that lowers the lift, quite slowly.

In order to raise the lift, you just push a button.

Since the proper method for storage is to have the lift sit on the saftey stops, without any tension on the cables, I don't see any reason why you couldn't just unplug it when it isn't in use. The hydralic pump only runs when raising or lowering the lift.

I have a 4 year and a 19 month, and feel very safe with them around it. I have the power cord from the pump going stright to the ceiling, then across the ceiling to an outlet. My oldest one (daughter) knows not to touch daddie's things, and my son is never in there alone (nor is my daugter for the most part).

With regards to the ceiling and trusses, unfortunately I can't help you there.

Bill
