Homemade Hardtop Hoist

Has anyone ever made there own hardtop hoist, instead of buying one. I feel like you should be able to make one a lot cheaper for what they are selling for on Quadratec. If you have made one can you give me some details and measurements on how you went about making it.

Do a search on here. There's a thread or two with some great ideas. I ran an eyebolt through the ceiling joist. Used two ratchet straps to create a harness & a rope pulley to hoist it up. I used two more ratchet straps to secure to the ceiling long term.

I made a Similar setup but I used a hand crank I setup and had an issue with the Rear center strap crushing the lip for the rear window. I'm currently working on a new setup.
