    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.

    Fits Vehicles: YJ Wrangler Base model/Laredo/Sport/Islander/Sahara/Rio Grande (1987-1995) YJ Wrangler Renegade (1991-1994) TJ Base model/X/Sport/Sahara/Rubicon(1997-2006) Please note that this model of Hoist a Top WILL NOT fit JK Models, 3 piece tops, OR Unlimited Models

    Fits Garages: Ceiling Height 7-22 ft, with room to park your jeep.

    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.

        5 Top Rated Questions

        do you have any way of mounting the crank on a side wall?

        • The Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top can be mounted with the crank on the side wall. The package will come with the optional sidewall mount instructions.

        Will this mount to a slanted ceiling by self adjusting the cables to be shorter in the back and longer up front..thanks

        • This could mount to a ceiling with a slant however, the mounting would be slightly different since the weight distribution will change. This kit however there will not be 2 cables, there is only 1 which make it easier to have the weight distributed.

        Can I get just the bars with hooks?

        • At this time, we only offer the Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top as a complete kit.

        Helpful (1)

        has anyone noticed problems with the hooks rubbing off the paint on the top? This seems like it would be a problem, particularly on the back.

        • If everything is installed properly you shouldn't have anything to worry about. I would recommend watching our install video as it includes attaching a hard top to this device once put together.

        Helpful (0)

        Where are the pre-installation Instructions it talks about in the lift instructions ???

        • They are referring to the beginning of the guide, where they recommended determining the direction of your ceiling joists and the spacing between them.

            Jeep Hoist

            Easy installation even for a novice handyman. Makes removing top a simple/safer act. Will be enjoying the summer a little more with the ease of removing and reinstalling the top when needed. This was an excellent purchase, wish I had bought one sooner.

            Solid product

            Install was pretty straight forward. Have yet to use but seems to be quality product. Hoist is a bit slow going up and down. Installed in about 2 hours with help of a friend.

            Lange Crank hoist a top JK

            I am very satisfied with the Lange Crank Hoist a top. Installation was fairly easy for me and I am not familiar with installing much of anything. I will admit I did have a little help installing this product as its much easier with assistance. It truly has been a life saver as it enables me a 48 year old female to remove this from my jeep without anyone else to assist me. I am very happy I invested in this product. I take great pride in not having to count on anyone to assist me year after year. Thank you Lange!

            Review from Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top (07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK)

            Works great

            Hoist works great. Install was harder than planned. Make sure you have a good stud finder if your studs are covered with drywall. I spent a few bucks on some upgrades lag bolts. Call me paranoid, but I had visions of the hardtop dropping on one of our cars, or worse, one of us. Only reason I didn’t give it a 5 star rating was because of the cheaper screws and bolts. Also, hard to explain in a review, but the holes in the single pulley mounts are difficult to put the screw in straight. So you end up putting the screw in at an angle and then when you tighten it the head breaks off. Happened to me three times. Fortunately, I live 1 block from Lowe’s.

            Works very well

            Kit was complete and fairly easy to install. Takes a while to raise and lower, but only do it in the fall and spring. Instructions are a little confusing when trying to figure out which cable goes on which side of the crank drum. Overall works quite well.

            Good, but not great.

            It works, but however many ways we try adjusting the slack it always ends up hanging with rear lower than front. A bit of a pain to work with. Wish there was some a bit smoother on the market. The video ET tutorials are amazing!

            Top hoist

            The hoist works fine. There were two things that kept me from giving it 5 stars. The hoist is very slow so I took the handle of and put a nut driver on my cordless drill to operate it. Also the directions are not very good. Only took an hour to install.

            Works Great!

            It was a little tricky to install given high garage ceiling, ensuring attaching to studs and fitting in between garage door opener, ceiling lights, etc. Did some careful planning and it worked out well. Saves so much room in garage!

            Hoist

            Easy to install. Like most instructions the last part putting the foam parts “the white foam” this should be done before adding the cable to the frame not before or it won’t slip over so I had to undo the 3 cable clamps and redo that part. Also the hand crank is very slow to lift but does the job. For the amount of times I will use this it’s ok . Lifting from the ground to my ceiling seemed like ten minutes of cranking.

            Love this hoist

            I had purchased a cheaper lift off of ebay and got what I paid for, it used a rope pully that twisted easily and it was off balance, not user friendly. Purchaseed the Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top, works like a champ. Intall was easy but takes some time. The crank runs smoothly and it is easy to use, makes taking the top off and putting it back on really easy and keeps it up and out of the way.

            Strong and easy to install. The best I think

            This was very easy to install and I think the best on its class because the hard top is not quite light weight and this hoist hold it very easy and I feel confident leaving the top hanging from the ceiling. I recommend this one above others.

            Missing pieces and parts

            I can not use this product as it is incomplete and missing pieces and parts. I now have to figure out what else to do. The instructions show parts that weren't included in the box and mounting hardware that was also missing. It would not fit my 2005 2 door Unlimited Rubicon. By the time I went to use it, cause my top was already off, to put my top back on, it was past the return deadline.

            Crank hoist

            Does job. Cranking is easy, but slow. Low gear ratio. Not a big deal, have soft top too and only lift / lower hard top 2x a year. Have 2dr Jeep. Most of the weight is held by rear pulley cable. May not rest at a level position to ceiling, tilted a bit like installation video. Relatively simple install.

            Does the job pretty good

            Not hard at all to install. My garage ceiling is sheet rocked and my electric stud finder crapped on me, this my only issue. As far as cranking it up, it us going to take some time. I use my drill with socket to get most of it up then manual turn it. Seems pretty solid. Only regret is now I am thinking of upgrading to electronic crank.

            So first off I love the hoist it works as described. Installation was easy with no surprises(watch the YouTube video. But I Hate the hand crank.... it’s loud(squeals) and takes way longer than I had expected. I WILL be upgrading to an automatic crank.
