    I modified mine like post 486 using the bimini caps off Amazon and some bicycle seat clamps. Works great! Now to somehow extend the pump handle... Thanks for the idea aukraut!

    Quoted from atrainn:

    I screwed around with it enough and have gotten it to slowly drop. Though no matter what I do I cannot get fine control.

    I bought mine used and it works the opposite - when loaded it slowly drops, and when not it drops quickly. In either case there is no fine control, it's either moving or not.

    Quoted from Boat:

    Something similar for sure ...
    Promax Seat Clamp Bolt with Quick Release (Black) amazon.com link »
    I would have sprung for the cheap eBay ones but I didn’t want to wait. Seem to work ok. Amazon’s are Not worth 5 bucks each IMO

    I have the bimini mod with the bike quick release and am not a fan of the quick releases. They are too hard to get tight enough to stay tight and come loose easily. I will be replacing them with a simple bolt and nylock nut with washers. Hopefully it'll stay tight that way. Also. make sure to LockTite the set screws in the bimini caps, they come loose as well.

    Quoted from pindude80:

    I am going to pick up one of these lifts but have a question. When doing the bimini caps do you tighten the bolts for whatever angle you want the handle at or does the handle just "free float" when you are using it?

    You can tighten the bolts and the handle will kinda stay in place where you want it. I have the bicycle quick-lock skewers and am changing to a bolt and nylock nut. Also, make sure to either LockTite or replace the grub screws that hold the posts in the bimini caps. I haven't yet and mine come loose all the time.

    I use a short length of 2x4 with my bimini-modified HF hydraulic cart. I lay it flat or on edge in the cart to provide 2 heights of lift-stop, which is perfect for use with the modified handle. I also use it on edge on top of the lift to raise the sides or front/back of the pin to adjust leg levelers. Using it as a leveling aid is clutch.
