I was skeptical when i tried this idea but it worked perfect.  The only reason i had trouble was technique and not enough lube.... It moves only very slightly.

Though i will admit there would be a little more torque available if it was bolted.  For now I'm going to try it this way and if it becomes an issue i will bolt it.  Problem is my two stall garage is on the small side.  1960s era house.  If I hard mount it, It will be in the way for other tasks and I would have to un-bolt it and then cover up the studs.  It will be a hassle.  I won't put studs in the floor where vehicle tires will be.

I put threaded anchors in the floor of the garage then bolt it down when I need it.

When I remove it I put nice low button head screws in the holes to protect the threads.

That would be an option.....Hmm.  I'll see how my current setup works over time.

JTX, that changer will work MUCH better if it's bolted to the concrete floor. You'll even find it takes less effort too.

I have had my No-Mar Changer bolted to 4' x 4'- 3/4" sheet of plywood doubled up for at least 5 years with zero issue. Well unless I was trying to take a car tire off my nephews GT Mustang rim ( welded on the rim ).

If Space is an issue for people then hitch mount  is an easy solution. You can put it into any 2" receiver even if the receiver is mounted to a post or something in the house. Then when the changer is not in use you just remove the backpost assembly and its stores pretty flat against a wall.

I use the hitch adaptor  only done 3 sets of tires but it works great with the nomar  classic model.

Both are good options.  I also like the mount you place the car on to hold it down.
