Homeowners who dread the prospect of lugging holiday decorations up and down a steep set of pull-down stairs might appreciate the VersaLift Attic Lift. This light-duty hoist is designed to fit between trusses in standard framing. It comes in two sizes (200- or 250-pound lifting capacity) and can be operated by a corded or wireless remote switch. The maker says the lift is as easy to install as a folding staircase. The basic model costs $1,185. 405/943-1468, bpghome.com
