Elevators are compact and efficient ways to traverse floors of player settlements. Elevators can reach either two, three or four stories depending on the elevator created and require 5 power to function.
The elevator stop levels align to the taller floors of the structures (i.e. warehouse, barn and vault) in later add-on's and pre-War buildings, but is misaligned to other settlement structures. This needs to be considered if the elevator is constructed as part of a building. No flat structural component (floor, roof, etc.) can be placed on top of an elevator frame, making it difficult to build additional floors on top of it, inclined roofs can be snapped to it as long as they do not overlap with the frame.

Settlers cannot use the call buttons on elevators.

- Storing and replacing the elevator will fix the issue but as the elevator does not snap, replacing them is problematic.
