5 threaded anchors are inserted into to the slab, for each post. You draw up a bolt in each anchor to expand them into the 7/8 inch holes drilled in the slab, like a Rivnut. The lift posts are just bolted to the slab anchors, and the lift is rated for 6,000 pounds capacity. Most Commercial shop lifts are similarily just bolted to floor anchors. The bars you see on them across the floor or the top, are just for running cables or hydrolic lines. As shown on the Youtube, you can unbolt the posts and store the whole lift aside. I just leave it up, and keep the race car parked there, or up on it.
THX. This is great. I am ordering one today.
