Autochair fitting help

Hi, I just purchased a perfect condition Autochair Olympian 100KG hoist (2016 model).
Im unable to purchase a fitting kit from Autochair, they won't supply!
A local company wants £350 for less then two hours work to fit it!
Im able to fit this myself and get brackets made but it would be really useful to see how it's fitted to. Honda CRV 2005. If anybody could help with a picture(s) I would be vert greatful.

    Hi, yes I checked YouTube first, they show operation but not fitting detail unfortunately. My cars old now, MK2 CRV, it's not shown in the YouTubes, only the newer one with an up over door, mines got a single barn door...
    Ill keep looking thanks!

    Thanks for this, it's showing me the detail I needed, I just have to find out how to make it fit my Honda now.

    Hi Luggsey, we bought a second hand Milford hoist 7 years ago to get Sue into our motorhome. It's been brilliant. We had our local motability fitter install it for us. We live in Norfolk, but you should be able to find your local man from motability. The hoist cost us £350 and fitting around £400. Hope that helps.
