"I got my hoist lift right after I got my Jeep Wrangler with hard and soft tops in early 04. I checked out numerous products on the market and found yours was the best for me. I have not been disappointed since. I can see since then your website has gotten bigger and better... Your hoist enables me to swap tops without help and very efficiently...Installation was a breeze, as is hoisting on and off my Wrangler. Thanks for a well made and ingenious product! It makes having dual tops a lot more fun!" John P

Here is a good example why you should own a Thunderbird Hardtop Lift:

One of our valued customers , Perry in California, unfortunately, dropped his Hardtop just two weeks after buying his car. He tried to move the top by hand, which was difficult, even with two people, and the hardtop still accidentally dropped on the ground. After that, he ended up buying a hardtop lift system, and then emailed us this message after he received his hoist;

"I wish I would of known about you guys two weeks ago before I damaged my Hardtop".

Don't learn this lesson the hard way. Invest in a solid Thunderbird Hard top Lift System that will last the life of your Thunderbird!

What is a Thunderbird Hardtop Lift?

The Thunderbird Hoist System enables just one person to remove and install the hard top very easily! This Thunderbird Hardtop Lift System is designed to store your Thunderbird Hardtop for long periods of time without damaging your Thunderbird's Hardtop.

If you plan on keeping your Thunderbird around, then, this is one of those products that you must own. The very small investment of this Thunderbird hardtop lift system is a bargain, considering that it will eliminate the need to have another person always assist you with the continuous, removing and installing, of your Thunderbird hardtop; let alone, eleviating, the big danger factor of the possibility that you might hurt your back, or damage your Thunderbird and/or hardtop.

This Thunderbird Hoist was designed to balance the Thunderbird Hardtop for long periods of time without damaging the paint or weather stripping.

You absolutely need to invest in a Thunderbird hardtop lift system if you plan on the constant removing of your hardtop during the seasons. Try our Thunderbird hardtop lift system out, and if your not 100% satisfied, then very easily send it back. (FYI we have had 1 returned hardtop lift system returned to us since 2002!)

Brake Winch Hardtop Lift Model Specifications:
  • One person safe with stable hardtop lift control. (Here is something to think about: you do need to make sure that you keep your hardtop in the preferred engaging installation position, while, you lower it down to your vehicle, to re-install your hardtop. To do this, you will need to crank the brake winch with one hand, and, with the other hand, you will then, need to position it, while it lowers. It's nothing to really worry about, but, this is why we offer the 100%, one person operation, with our "Electric Motorized Winch System". It simply gives you a little more control. See details below)
  • 5:1 Brake Winch with Auto Stop for an easy lift of your hardtop
  • Designed to support your Hard Top from the center section to the center bottom rear section (below rear window) by rubber soft padded material support brackets.
  • Padded cross tube and down straps.
  • Very easy to assemble. Comes assembled in the large shipping box.
  • Your Thunderbird Hardtop stores just inches from the top of the ceiling.
  • Packaged and assembled in the USA of high-quality USA steel material and webbing.
Electric Motorized Winch System Hardtop Lift Model Specifications:
  • 440 pound maximum lifting capacity which is more than enough for your Thunderbird Hardtop.
  • Same assembly as the Brake Winch Model except for the motor winch.
  • Electric Motor is a 110 volt universal plug, which is standard in all U.S. homes.
  • Control switch to operate electric motor winch for ease of use. (this hangs down from the top of the mounting bracket down to the bottom level of your Thunderbird hardtop)

Dear Aaron,
Please find attached the pictures of my lift installed. The garage has an eleven foot ceiling, and the vehicle you see in the foreground is a Durango . It shows you how much higher it is than another vehicle. It is working very well and I am very happy with it. A friend asked me what lift I was considering, and when I told him yours, he said great, as he had one already.
Please let me know if you need any further information.

I have enjoyed the Hardtop lift and the ease of operation. It takes what would be a two man job and makes it easily done by a one.

"Aaron, thank you for your quick reply, I know why your company has great reviews on products and service."

Hello Mr. Scott:
I received, assembled and installed my new MB Hardtop Lift last week, in a very short time. It is a lightweight, simple, logical and still well suited/rated for items much heavier that my classic car's hardtop. It is a great investment for my car, storage space and safe care of my automobile.
Thank you very much!

Aaron, The Hardtop hoist arrived safe and sound! The quality is quite superior and the instructions are clear and understandable ! Thank You for your help.
Sincerely, A.J. (9-20-09)

IN reply to the above testimonial, here is A.J.'s followup message:

Aaron, My Hardtop Hoist went together beautifully, just like the directions said, take your time, understand it. Adjust it to fit your top. I cannot believe how effortless it is to remove the Hardtop! I wanted to be able to remove the Hardtop by myself and now I can! I can leave it up by the Garage ceiling or set it on my hardtop stand. What a great Hoist!
Sincerely, A.J. Roden (9-24-09)

Just wanted you to know my hardtop lift system arrived Wednesday, Aug. 20 and I installed it today and it is working wonderfully.

"Thank you for your prompt reply to my problem. I can truly say you have given me good service and I am very happy with your products. I haven't had a chance to install your Hard Top Hoist Lift, but I am sure it is better than pure man power, oops dropped it. I will certainly recommend you to my fellow T-Bird owners.
Regards : Jim A. (Washington, NC)
