I used some ratchet straps, and a chain fall attached to some rafters. Amazing how heavy a Stinger 1 is!

I didn't feel warm & fuzzy about lifting my Stinger 1 so I bought some straps from HF and rented an engine lift. Maybe if I was 30 again...
I don't remember what the lift cost but it wasn't very much.

Default Lift

Bruce,

I stuck a 5' piece of gas pipe through the frame(parallel with x axis) at each end. The better half, son, daughter and myself then each grabbed an end of pipe and lifted on to stand. Worked like a charm.
