The Whisper Lift™ II by Touchstone is the culmination of over 7 years of Touchstone's research and design by our expert mechanical engineers. This lift is constructed from durable steel for unmatched strength and stability and is powered by our whisper quiet 24V motor. The Whisper Lift™ II is equipped to provide the power and durability you need in your TV lift mechanism.
The Whisper Lift™ II measures 32" H x 10" W x 7" D (including brackets that connect to back of TV) and lifts to a full height of 68" in under 30 seconds. Designed to fit flat screen TV's up to 65", this lift holds televisions up to 100 lbs, with a lift capacity of 120 lbs.
Touchstone's Universal Quick Connect system makes it easy to install any flat screen TV in just minutes. A universal hardware kit comes with each TV lift kit which includes bolts and machine screws to accommodate most brands and models of flat screen TVs. The Whisper Lift™ II features a unique mounting mechanism which fastens your flat screen TV to the Quick Connect Bracket for guaranteed safety and security. While most Whisper Lifts are installed within our Touchstone TV Lift Cabinets to lift your flat screen upward, these lifts can also be mounted to your ceiling or wall and drop your flat screen downward, as shown here.
The Whisper Lift™ II operates by using a single piston actuator in an enclosed system for completely safe operation with virtually zero wear and tear. The steel external casing of the lift provides added protection for the lift internal parts, which keeps it clean and free of dirt and any debris.
The Whisper Lift™ II is the highest quality television lift on the market. Our customers adore this product. It’s the most durable, quiet, and reliable lift mechanism out there despite its low price. You may find other more expensive lifts from other brands, but do not mistake high mark ups for high quality: the Touchstone Whisper Lift™ II is the top of the line TV lift. This lift’s high quality makes it extremely reliable, as well. You will have to replace your flat screen television long before you ever have to replace this lift: the Whisper Lift™ II is built to last.
Touchstone's Whisper Lift™ II Flat Screen TV Lift Mechanism was featured on House Crashers on DIY Network, on the "Rustic Memphis Attic Hideaway" episode.
Host and licensed contractor Josh Temple takes it above and beyond with a sleek desk build, modern skylight and charming ceiling treatment. Touchstone provided a Whisper Lift™ II for this project.

The product was exactly as described, very durable, and exactly what I wanted. I was very pleased with the weight, construction, and mechanics. Directions and installation was simple and easy. The lift works perfectly!

The lift is strong, well made and is easy to install. We had a "pony" wall (1/2 height wall/bookcase) between the living room/diningroom. We removed the shelving in an area going down through the wall and put the lift in. Looks great!

My wife has wanted a tv lift "footboard" for a long time and I finally had enough guts to try and build one for her. The Whisper Lift II was the perfect companion for my homemade cabinet. Easy to install, works great and looks impressive in operation. If you are able to build a basic cabinet, you will be able to incorporate this into your design without any trouble.

Just installed the Whisper Lift II in my man cave and it drops down from the ceiling. It has been a fun install. A bit challenging due to the gable ceiling and the height, I had to design a hanger and lengthen the unit two feet and build wall braces. Worked out great. Definitely lives up to it's name whisper quiet. Thanks Touchstone !!!

Been using the lift for 6 months now. It's a terrific product at a great price! I intended to build it into a piece of furniture but ended up just bolting it to the floor (and wall) behind my couch. It looks great and works perfectly. I've actually had people applaud when I showed it to them! Keeps the TV out of sight which makes both my wife and I happy. Bravo for a great product!

I modified the plans from Woodsmith and built a cabinet and it is Fantastic how quick and quiet the lift works.. I am very impressed with the quality and help that I needed from the manufacture and the quick answers to all of the questions I had about the product.. Delivery time was also super fast ! Help with assembly or questions is excellent as it is AMERICANS that speak English not people from other places that that are hard to understand .. so the American support is excellent..Lets keep up the good work here in America!

Speaking as an engineer with more than 40 years experience, I am very impressed with the quality of your product (the rugged design, well made parts, perfect paint finish, elegance of electrical design and, of course, your customer service). Congratulations on making this capable lift at such a reasonable price and thank you for the Woodsmith promotion.
