Considering the E-Z Top Hoist

Recommended Posts

Based on recommendations, I'm seriously considering the purchase of an E-Z Top Hoist for my hard top. Here's a link to the product: http://www.eztop.com/boxster.htm

Does anyone have any comments before I "pull the trigger" on the purchase? I'm planning to buy a manual hoist model with the multi point attachment system.

I decided on the hoist because my wife was uncomfortable helping me lift the hard top on and off my Miata, and the Boxster top is heavier. (I could actually put the Miata top on and off by myself, but I always considered it risky behavior.)

If anyone has a used E-Z Top Hoist they would like to part with, please let me know.

I bought the EZ Top Hoist for my Boxster. The install was a little mre work than I anticipated but it works as advertised, without any problems. I bought the electric hoist with the multipoint attachment system.

Just make sure that you have a handle on where your studs are in the ceiling and walls, and that you have a few hours to spend.

I decided to buy it and installed it about two weeks ago. I chose the manual winch and multi-point attachment. The installation wasn't too difficult and it works as advertised. The price is high, but not out of line with the quality of the unit.
