"This product came promptly and with all needed pieces and great packaging. Like some said the instructions were a bit lacking, but a few online videos helped. The only suggestion we would make is that they should add straps to it so once it is suspended it doesn't swing around like a pinata."

"I originally was going to "build my own" but decided at last to buy this from JC Whitney. That was a good choice on my part, it saved me a whole Saturday and a ton of headache. You have to be careful ordering on this site because the make and model can be deceiving. I almost ordered the manual thinking I was going to get the power. I went with the power unit because I have a high ceiling height and it had the most cable. One of the reviewers was correct, the instructions are terrible, but I called the factory directly and they have a video that went over the stuff I was foggy about.
overall, I am really happy with this product. It got my top off the floor of the garage and I don't have to bribe my neighbors over to help me get the top on and off i can do it by myself.

Manual Crank - Hoist a top

"I purchased the manual crank unit, as I only plan to lower once a year. It takes about 10 minutes to crank it all the way down...not bad at all.
Only draw back....the directions were terriable. Once I sorted through the directions, it was actually easy to install and worked great. Took me less than 3hrs.
I mounted my crank high enough on the wall...and my pulley high enough on the cieling (I added 4 x 4 on top of rafter vs mounting to the bottom of rafters) that I can pick up the roof directly from the garage floor and snug it all they way up to the botton of rafters (maximum clearance).
I had to add a 2nd pulley direclty above the crank, to be able to turn the crank without hittinng my knuckles on the cable.
All in all....good product...works great."

"The unit came with a cheap harbor freight winch that exposure to a little damp weather causes it to break down. Lange replaced it once but replacement remote was broken on arrival. I sealed all parts of unit with rtv, babied it through one season, stored it in the garage for the winter and it would not work come spring"
Pros: Lifting bracket works well
Cons: winch breaks to easy
