Look at the installation guides for detailed drawings.
now see it holds it with out any of the seals being pressed down.

apo8307 I think i would be more concerned with the seals being flat for the whole time. i don't think it would warp the plastic of the top but it would or might cause leaks later due to the seals being pressed flat for that long. you can just get the wench that would lift it up and keep it near the ceiling of the garage. my freind made one using a 10.00 dollar hand wench and 2x2 wood and hooks the wood he made a big t with it and the hoos just turn to get under the top when he cranks it up he just leaves it up and out of the way. hope this helps

Freedom Top storage question

All - I came across this idea for summer storage of a Freedom Top:
http://www.jeepfan.com/projects/JKHa...2_IMG_4288.jpg

I like the simplicity and how tightly it would tuck my roof against the wall.
My question is around the weight being on the short sides of the roof - do you guys think this could make the roof prone to bending or warping as the temperatures heat up in a garage all summer, etc. ??

Thanks for any input.
