The updated guide is a quick-reference single-source manual for lifting point information as recommended by the vehicle manufacturers. The 70-page Lifting Points Guide (LP-G) for domestic and imported cars and light trucks uses more than 200 undercarriage images to cover the most recent 25 model years.
For this new edition, the 2017 model year vehicles were added, some older images were revised and additional cautionary notes were provided to clarify pick-up point locations for shop owners, technicians and other LP-G users. The 2017 edition now includes a “Safe Lifting Suggestions” section providing additional guidance to those using a vehicle lift.
ALI sponsors this guide annually as an industry service, utilizing data furnished exclusively for ALI by Chek-Chart Products and MOTOR Information Systems. Many proactive companies and franchises now incorporate ALI’s LP-Guide and other safety materials as an integral component of their overall employee safety and training program, according to the company.
