Should that stuck problem occur to anyone else: Try a small car jack or your actual car jack- under the engine or on the frame of lift...Im guessing that would lift enough to release the safety catch.

I installed a few round eye hooks in the garage ceiling and use heavy-duty yellow straps from the passenger grab rails to the hooks.
Better than trying to attach bike to the lift, which can still topple over!
Secure it to the ceiling and its not going to rock or fall off.

900 pounds is a big deal when its laying on top of your leg and your phone is just out of reach

The $4 tie-down straps from cyclemax, intended for making a tow attach point on the triple tree,
they work on rear frame as the safety strap attach point- when the seat/bars are removed

Tip: when removing the wheels you want the bike close to the ground during actual release of the part.
Rear wheel has to slide sideways a few inches OFF the spline shaft, before it can drop out-
there is a cool method using cardboard and 2x4 blocks, plus a small car jack, nice!

Front wheel: you want to release pressure on the axle, so wheel on ground for the final bit
OK to have the bike in the air for small parts removal on the way to the axles.

HFT Lift tip: Push down fully on the pedal to slowly lower, pressing partway actually makes it drop fast!

You left it in the air with pressure on the simple oring seal for 18 months and are surprised its failed on your return?

Wow! I would hate to think how tough it would be to get my 1500 off the lift if that happened

I'm wondering if there is a way to relieve the pressure after resting the load on the stops?

If you disconnect/remove the hydraulic bottle from the lift frame, and leave it sitting upright with no load...maybe?

Does resting--no load position in vertical, horizontal or angled- for 18 months matter, I have no idea.
May learn something next time I need to use the lift~
