Hangin a hard top

Hey Folks,

I recently hung my hard top from my garage rafters with some with some some plain wire. I don't know the thickness of the wire or anything like that...It worked fine and I just put the HT back on last night (by myself) with some ease. I'm not completley happy with the set up and I wanted to see what you folks have made.

Some Pics would be great...

I refuse to buy anything (ie hard top hoist)


Thanks

Try 2x4's under each end and ratchet straps, I know some guys that are using that setup. I used to just use ratchet straps to eye bolts in the ceiling rafters on all four corners, worked pretty well until I bought a hoist.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!
