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 cable pulling 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. Q: I have a 12-20 foot ceiling why can't I use this manual hoist? A: We use specailty Power Units that are licensed and insured for lifting, for this reason they are only allowed 14 feet of cable and require at least three wraps of cable on the drum for safe operation. Due to the lack of more cable, the manual version is not able

      Do you have Hoist-A-Top Frame ONLY set (014-340)?

      • Unfortuantely we do not offer the Hoist-A-Top Frame only at this time.

      We are looking for a hoist that we can hook up to a tow motor and lift off the jeep. Would this hoist work this way instead of mounting it to a garage ceiling?

      • The Lange Manual Hoist-a-Top is designed to be used manually and is not intended for use with a motor. This is going to require a mount above the jeep, that is permanently anchored and immovable to prevent the top from swinging excessively while lifting/lowering.

          Storage solution

          The hoist works as described. To make it better, I used the idea of using 2 x 4's and straps to make it steady as seen in a customers pic online. Works like a charm. Great idea to store the hard top and still be able to park in a garage with the top hanging from my ceiling. I pull under the top with my hood and parking is a breeze.

          Makes it easier for one person

          Watched the video and installed in less than half an hour. Think about installing wall eyelet for the come-a-long higher so the cable won't hit your hard top when it's lifted to the ceiling. It's now less hassle dealing with the hard top than the soft top.

          Great way to store your top

          It's nice to be able to easily lift the roof off the Jeep and not have to worry about finding a storage place. The ceiling in my garage is 10', which allows the whole unit to be lifted out of the way.

          Lange Hoist a top

          Easy to install and works as promised. Took about 2 hours to install and keeps the top off the ground and out of the way in my garage. I would recommend this product if you are looking for a way to pull your hardtop for the summer.

          Better to build yourself...

          Hoist is okay. I thought I'd save myself some time and buy one instead of building myself. Mistake. They only provide two pulley points which make for a straight line from ceiling to the wall/crank. Problem with that is the cable then takes up space by being on a diagonal from the ceiling to crank. To fix that I purchased another pulley to put tat the corner of the ceiling, straight up from the crank. Problem is there isn't even enough cable provided to do that. So, I also had to replace the cable. Ugh. Two other complaints. One, when not used the crank is not affixed to the wall so it kind of just dangles there (looks crummy). Would be better if they provided one that screws to the wall. Second, the frame that holds the freedom tops is a bit flimsy. It would be better to have a full square of metal to support the tops rather than the foam brackets provided. Bottom line. I'd look for better options if I were doing it again or more likely just build one. It is a very simple contraption, but understand many don't have the time or ability to do it.

          good deal

          reason for 4 stars not five would be the cheap cotter pin keeping the roller in place which broke after making several adjustments to the lift point. Replaced with better one from home depot.

          Almost perfect

          Everything went well, installation and assembly was a breeze, BUT, while i was pulling the empty assembly back up to the ceiling to basically store till i needed it again, it was super unstable and I had to hang a weight from one end to keep it from pitching wildly to one side. so Im taking off a star for that, otherwise it works like a champ

          Great Hoist

          Works great for a starter hoist with the come along. It now takes me longer to remove the screws then it does to lift the top off. I have 11 ft. ceiling, finished garage and this does the trick. Plan on adding an electric ceiling hoist to in the future.

          Great product and easy to use, but expensive.

          This hoist is awesome. It is fairly easy to install, except the actual electric hoist mount, and works great to hold the top up and out of the way. The overall stability was not as good as I had wished, so I added one extra line of support to hold it straight. But, this is by far the easiest way to remove the hard top and keep it out of the way in your garage.

          The lift works great, i love it! It took about 2 hours for my husband and I to install it in the garage. Took us about 10 minutes to remove the top the first time, which i'm sure will go faster now that we know what we are doing.
