How does it work?

At the touch of a button, this easy-to-use exterior lift raises and stores a fully-assembled scooter or power chair for transport on the outside of your vehicle.  Simply roll your mobility device on the lift platform from either side, hit a button, and let the ASL-250 Out-Sider Meridian do the lifting for you.  Scooters and power chairs are automatically secured when the lift is raised.  Retractable belts are also available for securement.

Because this lift is hitch-mounted, all your cargo room in the rear of the vehicle is preserved.  An optional swing-away arm allows easy cargo access for vehicles with rear door or tailgate.

Safety Note: The combined weight of your scooter or power chair and this lift (with or without a Swing Away) should not exceed the tongue weight rating (TWR) of your vehicle’s hitch receiver.
