ALI announces Lifting Points Guide now available in digital and print

The Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) announced that it is offering the 2024 edition of its Lifting Points Guide, “Vehicle Lifting Points for Frame Engaging Lifts,” as either a digital product or bundle of print and digital.

Both the print and digital versions of the Lifting Points Guide have the same content covering model year 2000 to 2024 cars, SUVs, vans, light-duty trucks and EVs sold in the U.S. and Canada.

“While many customers prefer the always-on access, easy magnification and keyword search of the digital version, some still want a print copy, often because they don’t have connectivity in the shop,” said R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman, president of ALI. “Offering a bundled solution lets customers choose which format works best for them in any situation.”

The ALI-sponsored Lifting Points Guide is updated annually to reflect the latest vehicles, ALI said. Lifting points are showcased in more than 250 undercarriage images. Each purchase provides online access on up to three devices, with no third-party software required.

The industry safety standard for lift operation, inspection and maintenance, ANSI/ALI ALOIM (current edition), requires shops to make lifting points information available to technicians, ALI notes.

ALI’s Vehicle Lifting Points for Frame Engaging Lifts is available for purchase and immediate use at autolift.org/shop.
