A sling, yoke, swing arm, a lifting mechanism are the main moveable components of the Port-A-Lift Personal Transfer System. Mounts for the lifting mechanism are installed wherever needed.

Many mounts can be installed in various areas of a home, or in several vehicles, and a single swing arm and lifting mechanism moved from mount to mount as desired. For extra convenience, some people will prefer to purchase an additional lifting mechanism if using multiple mounts.
