I did the ratchet strap thing for a few years in my previous house's low ceiling carport.
Inexpensive and worked great.
I bought the Lange Hoist a Top when we bought our current house a few years ago. The garage has a fairly high ceiling and the straps would be difficult.
The only drawback is that the T-Bar lift is supported by one center point. This allows the top to swing around freely while suspended in the air. No problemo, I have some extra ratchet straps that I secure the top with while in storage.
I used the included come-a-long. I would love an electric hoist, but I could not justify the added cost. I've only put the hard top on once in the last 3 years!
