Top-Notch Function. Using Lange's Crank Hoist-A-Top means that you'll never have to worry about straining your back muscles or dropping your Jeep Wrangler JLs top when you want to remove it in good weather. Instead, this Hoist-A-Top allows for quick and easy removal and storage so you can remove the top on your own in minutes and leave it stored at ceiling level in your garage or carport.
Smart Hook. Featuring a rear smart hook for easy lifting and storing, this Hoist-A-Top offers dramatically improved balance and takes up less storage space than ever before so that your top remains securely out of the way. It also comes with a balance blade, which supports any top with a well-balanced steel frame while providing easy storage for freedom top pieces.
Maximum Durability. Created with rubber coated hooks and foam-covered hardware, this Hoist-A-Top protects your top's finish while its strong powder coated steel frame attaches to your Jeep's top without drilling for maximum strength and convenience. The Hoist-A-Top also comes with a hand crank that can be operated by just one person while the winch in the ceiling does all the work.
Straight forward Installation. This Hoist-A-Top can be secure in just 3 hours. Light mechanical skills are required, but all instructions are included.
Limited 1-Year Warranty. To protect against defects, this top is backed by a 1-year limited warranty. Some limitations apply, so see the full warranty for details.

Overall, the item does exactly as intended. The instructions aren't the best but the video on youtube makes it easier. I would recommend a helper as you have to drill into the ceiling. Like others have mentioned, the quality of the screws included aren't the best. I broke a couple of each but luckily I had others to complete the job. The handle is slow but a 3/4 socket on the drill makes it a breeze. I have noticed that it does help to guide the wire as you are raising it up to ensure it grabs the spool smoothly. Overall, it does what i needed/wanted and that is to take my top on and off by myself. Very convenient to hold the freedom top too.Helpful (1)

Lange Crank Hoist-A-Top
Easy to install and easy to use. A must if you love to drive with the top off and have little space around you to get it out of the way.Helpful (0)

Lange crank hoist a top
This hoist works really well. I like the way the brackets fit to the top and the control with the handle for initial lifting of the top. I mounted mine in a pole building so using the hand crank gets annoying lifting the top into the rafters. I must say once the top was off the first time I cheated and used my drill to lift it once I knew it was free of the Jeep every time after.Helpful (1)

Overall works well
The item I received was defective. Called the manufacturer, had to wait over a week to receive a non-defective crank. Had to take down the whole system to replace the crank, which was annoying and time consuming. Once reinstalled with proper components, works pretty well. I am able to remove top by myself (110 lb woman with no upper body strength), which was my goal. I don’t give it 5 stars bc I think it is overpriced for what it is, it always seems a bit off balance, and you have to partially disassemble (remove back glass flange) with each use.Helpful (3)

Super happy with the whole design. Easy to read and follow instructions and came with all hardware. The best part is hoist the hardtop with freedom doors if you have enough clearance.Helpful (2)
This is to be installed in garage with a high ceiling but under 20'. Will there be enough cable to hoist the top. A similar product from another manf stated it would work in a tall ceiling and it did not based on the reviews it received. This is going to be a gift so I want to make sure it will work.
TheLange Crank Hoist-A-Top is designed to work with 7-20 Feet garage ceilings.
The above posted link to the assembly instructions are for the cart. How can I get a copy of the proper assembly instructions? Also, one reviewer mentioned that "you have to partially disassemble (remove back glass flange) with each use". What exactly is the back glass flange that has to be removed?
Does the hoist come with detailed instructions?? And will ExtremeTerrain be making a install video??
This will come with detailed instructions. These can be seen at the link below. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2406/5071/files/014-1XX.pdf?8405368273768760190
Hello! I received this product as a gift but only have a carport to install it in which has no back wall... Can this be installed with the crank alongside my jeep, or only with the crank behind it? Thanks!
This is designed to be used from the rear of the jeep, however it would be possible to use it from the side, however you may need to get inventive with the mounting of the eyelets to get the top to lift evenly.
