    I wouldnt worry if you have it all the way extended. If else you will probably suck in air in the system.

    Never heard of any problems with this. I use a hoist in my garage and hang bikes from it by the saddle.

    If has a hydraulic lock mechanism and fully extended: not a problem.
    If it's a Bike Yoke Revive: not a problem.
    If has a mechanical lock mechanism: not a problem.
    Anything else: probably there is a problem.
