Yeah, it usually sticks out about leg level (just below the actual chair) just as the chair swings around for the return trip. so if there's someone still on the chair, they hit it. The stick is attached to a switch that just cuts power to the lift. As I said, I stayed on the chair and kicked it on Sunday because the liftie was just going to let people dogpile.

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
