Operating your Hoists Hand Remote

The hoist is operated via a simple two-button remote. To operate:


  • Fully extend the remote aerial;
  • Stand close to and point the remote at the hoist;
  • Press and release the down button (the smaller of the two) to get the hoist to come down;
  • Press and release either button to get the hoist to stop;
  • Press the up button (the larger of the two) to get the hoist to go up.

Remote Operation Technique:

  • Use firm, short, deliberate presses;
  • Do not repeatedly press buttons quickly. Leave three to five seconds between pressing buttons. The hoist contains some sensitive switches which are not designed to be fired repeatedly; continued rapid usage may affect the long term durability of the unit.

Power will not be supplied to the hanging fixture until the connector plate is in its fully raised position. When the connector plate is fully raised it will auto-stop, and a safety locking pin will enable, to hold the weight of the hanging fixture, ensuring the wire rope is not under permanent strain.

Please note: there is a built-in safety device which means that after the hoist is powered up, it will only operate for 3 minutes either in the lifting or the lowering mode. After a lapse of more than 3 minutes without the hoist being operated, the safety device will prevent the hoist from operating. Simply power off the electrical supply and power on again, then press the remote control once more to activate the hoist to lower or lift the lights.

How to re-program a new hand remote to the hoist:

    1. Switch on the power.
    2. Within 5 seconds, press the ‘UP’ and ‘DOWN’ buttons for 8 – 10 seconds.
    3. Press the ‘DOWN’ button to see if the hoist lowers your unit.
