There have been several upgrades to our "DockSide Lil' Lifter" ("DSLL") product line since our start in 2012. We have listened to our valued customers and personal watercraft dealers/manufacturers to incorporate many improvements and customizations. Our lifts handle much higher personal watercraft weights, up to 1400 pounds. Our 1400 lb capable "DockSide Lil' Lifter" is the most robust product in the series - it can handle the heaviest of today's watercraft. All of the LSLI products are available nationwide! If you like what you see and would like to purchase our products, visit our Find A Dealer Page to locate a dealer near you. If there is no dealer near you, we'll be happy to help you with an LSLI product that suits your watercraft needs.
I have the 5’ lift and my new cable is 12’. The cable currently on the lift is 3/16ths but I think you guessed right in that the cable is just too long and getting crushed. I’ll be changing it out later this week. We had a new Dock built last year and the dock builder put the cable on …..he must have just used the 16’ cable without checking if that was the right size.
Anyway, I appreciate all of your help. Your customer service is beyond compare in today’s day and age!

Gene has been generous with his time in helping me maintain the three Demco Lil Lifters I own. When I originally reached out to him in 2013, I was in the process of purchasing my lifts. Gene helped me understand which Lil Lifter model I bought and whether it would work for my SeaDoos. He took the time to provide me with use and maintenance information even though I hadn’t purchased the lifts from Lakeshore Lifts. I’ve subsequently called Gene numerous times to order replacement parts for all three of my Lil Lifters. For each order, he asks detailed questions to confirm I’m ordering the correct parts and often follows up with an email. Shipping has always been timely. Gene includes extra instructions or a note with additional advice on maintenance or installation with each of my orders.
It’s great to have such a knowledgeable resource in the industry. I highly recommend Lakeshore Lifts and will continue to use them for years to come. Thanks!

This company is great to deal with, especially the owner Gene. We ordered a lift and told him we had some special needs. He and his crew went out of their way and took extra time to customize a lift to meet our needs. He treats the customer like an old friend, like businesses use to do! Their work and products were very well built and the quality was outstanding. Even after the sale he was there to offer information and support.
I would be happy to buy from them anytime or recommend them to anyone that needs lift or dock products. Thanks,
