    The time is coming to ceiling mount my new CRT :D , the ceiling beams are reinforced, the unistrut is in place and the threaded rod has been cut to length, but how the hell do I get it up there :eek: !! I have been recommended by a tool hire company to use a "genie lift", its like a mini forklift on a trolly normally used to lift air con units into place, it will lift up to 250kg to 3.5m high which is plenty for me :) . Does anyone have any further advice on kit that would be better or will the genie do the job :confused:

    The genie is the best tool for the job.

    Any chance of some pics showing how the unistrut, threaded rod, and beam reinforcement looks, for when I try to stick my 801s to the ceiling? :smashin:

    You could have bought a barco CM100 projection lift. Than it is a one man job (ok a 2nd one to put the nuts onto the bolts..)
