After looking at many different setups I have decided on how I'm going to build my own hoist. What I have yet to figure out is where exactly to put the ratcheting strap hooks. I am afraid that they will slide around and my hardtop will fall on the ground. Can someone please post pictures of exactly where they hook the hooks at on the hardtop?
This is a bit off topic, but I just replaced my Harbor Freight bicycle hoists that I was using for kayaks with Harken's. I have to say I'm really impressed at the ease of the Harkens, not so impressed with the price. You get what you pay for.
Has anyone installed the flap down eye bolt latches that are used on some trailers or boats? I think this would work great on the rear area on the top by the window. However, I'm not sure if drilling would spiderweb crack the top or not. If not it sure would be handy instead of running hooks or rope through the window.
