Details

Product Details: This hardtop hoist is the one. Easy one person operation makes the job"child's play". Rugged construction and a powerful safety-featured lifting device are included. Your top will not require any modifications to use this hoist. Rubber coated hooks and foam covered hardware protect your valuable hardtops finish. The high-tensile steel cable design should not be confused with cheaper rope and pulley hardtop hoists sold elsewhere. Hoist-a-Top™ uses an incredibly strong steel frame that quickly attaches to your vehicle top. There is nothing to drill or attach to your top. A specially designed crank mechanism then lifts your top to the ceiling in your garage or carport for convenient, out-of-the-way storage. It takes only about three minutes to remove your top, by yourself. Replacing it is just as easy. Hoist-a-Top™ is a complete turnkey system. Installation is simple and their custom systems come complete with excellent installation instructions. No more pulled muscles, strained backs, dropped or damaged tops, or pinched fingers. Best of all, you don't have to find a group of people to help every time! Hoist-a-Top™ is available with a manual or power lift. A Hoist-a-Top™ Power Unit upgrade is available for owners of the manual Hoist-a-Top™ that want the convenience of a power lift. 1 Year Limited Warranty.

Frequently Asked Questions About This Product: Q: Can I order just the " T frame " section with hooks and slide? A: The manual unit consists of this "T frame" section and Power Puller unit. The Power Puller (come-along) represents very little of the kit, and wouldn't result in significant savings. The easiest and cheapest way to get the kit in a situation where you don't require a lifting mechanism is to order the manual version of that hoist.

does the back window have to open or "up".

KeithF

  • The Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top will not require the rear window to be open in order to lift the top off or store it.

I have an 7'1" ceiling in my garage. I realize the min height says 7' but is that a "real" 7'? Any caveats with such short clearance?

KirkS

  • Hello! The reason that the minimum height is set at 7' is because anything less than that, you would not have enough clearance to get your top off of your jeep. That height is truly 7', so with your 7'1" ceiling you will have enough clearance to get your top off without any issues at all.

    Review from Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top (07-17 Wrangler JK)

    Convenient storage option

    The crank hoist-a-top allowed me to take advantage of the storage capability in my garage. The hardtop is up and out of the way. I'll be able to retro fit it for the winter storage of my soft top. It was simple to install and worked as advertised. However, my 8ft ceiling made the angle on the return cable from the ceiling to the crank too sharp and it touched the hardtop. I had to install a 2nd pulley I purchased from Lange or else the cable would have scratched the hardtop. A simple fix of a problem that was not mentioned in the directions. I could not have been the first person to have this problem. Glad I purchased the Lange Crank hoist-a-top!!

    Review from Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top (07-17 Wrangler JK)

    Great idea, quality is questionable

    I purchased this product, fit seems great, install went great. The manual crank function is on the cheap side. Worm drive or gear is very cheap, must be a cheap aluminum and it scraps and is wearing badly the first time I lifted the top. I will have to go out and buy a replacement. Something that is a higher quality.

    Crank vs Power Hoist

    I've read great reviews on both but was curious if it was worth spending an extra $100 for the power hoist?

    Review from Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top (07-17 Wrangler JK)

    Finally! I can take top off myself!

    I probably over researched this and other brands of Jeep hard top hoists and storages. I'm 63 year's young, own a 4 door Rubicon and haven't had the top off for 2 years. It takes 2 to remove, no problem, but then where to store it? My husband installed this hoist by himself in about 1 hour. I love it! He did have to install an eye hook on the wall so the rope didn't rub the top.

    Makes it easy

    A couple hours to set up and the top was off in less than 3 hours. Comes with a dvd that is helpful. The ceiling mounted pulley is held up with 2 drywall screws in a stud. I screwed in an extra large eye screw and ran the line through it before installing the pulley.

    Easy to install and easy to use

    When I bought this, I was expecting to spent all day installing it. It only took a couple hours. Once installed, taking the top off only takes about twenty minutes and it's a one person job. Putting the top back on takes about the same amount of time.

    Easy install works great

    I bought the crank version of this hoist after a lot of online research and talking with other Jeep owners. This version was the one recommended and I've been very happy with it. Instructions for install are easy to follow and include a DVD to walk through it. It makes it easy to take the top off by myself.
