This motor bypass tool is used to allow you to lower or raise your lift in an emergency when you have power or motor failure. If you have a C-face motor, this tool will allow you to use your cordless drill to lower your boat lift. You will need to actually remove your motor and insert this tool in the gearbox where the shaft of the motor goes. It isn’t ideal, but it will get you out of a bind! If you are in a bad situation and short of time you will wish you had one!
