Hoist Lifts top hoist

Has anybody used one of these, or even heard anything about them? I need a hoist that mounts to the ceiling at a single point and this is all I have found, but I cannot find any info on them anywhere. Let me know if you have any info..it's either this or piece one together and this sounds way easier. Thanks

Go to "search" for RACOR Hoist, and/or goto--google

Pages of info on the ease/use of the RACOR hoist and simplicity for use by one person, for hardtop removal-

You won't have to worry about multi straps and balance/w chances of dropping one corner of the Hardtop-

Finished my Racor lift 2 weeks ago, sorry no pics, but they all look the same. Works perfectly, very easy to crank by hand (or you can use a 1/2" drill). Actually fun to use.

Thanks Jim

Looks like its a rope, couple of pulleys and a eye hook for you

Try Lange...just installed the power one in my garage and love it. I did upgrade the eye bolt to a 1/2" forged one, but plenty of holding power to hold a 90lb top up...plus I don't need the wife to help and listen to her in panic mode when doing it...

Ha..ya, that's pretty much the motivation behind this. These look similar to the lange, just without the frame, but they are quite a bit cheaper..but there is probably a reason no one knows anything about them.
