It is issues like that, and more, that made me decide to just go with a router plate I lift out. It pops out, I can quickly, and easily, make any adjustments or whatever, then pop it back in and go.
Personally, if I ever decided I did want a router lift, I would adept a car scissor jack, and go with that. I believe that would be at least as accurate as any store bought lift - and loads less expensive.

Some days, the supply of available curse words is insufficient to meet my demands.
Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
