    Mine has no guide lines, because I turned them off. With the angle of my camera the guide lies were pointed in the air.

    The EVO LA frame-side brackets tuck real nice. Shown are the front driver's. Forget eggs, I'm going to have my family search for these on Easter. 😋

    Brace yourselves for another episode of...

    I've been using a Racor lift to store my JKUR hardtop and now my JLUR hardtop for a couple of years now. I happened upon a kit by Topsy Products called a Hinge Hook Hoist Bracket. It looked interesting and I thought I'd give it a go.

    The kit comes with two brackets that mount between the rear window glass hinges and hinge bolts, two rear hoist straps with mini snap hooks and one long front hoist strap with s-hooks.

    Here you can see the hinge brackets installed. They don't sit up very high, they do not interfere with lifting the glass, and I doubt I'll snag them on anything. The only thing I don't like is the manufacturer printing on the sides, making them a little less subtle than I prefer. Although if they were made by King , I'd probably be all about it... hypocrite. LOL.

    Here are the short straps with mini snap hooks connected to the rear platform support bar of the Racor lift.

    The snap hooks connected to the hinge brackets.

    The long front hoist strap underneath the front of the shell with s-hooks around the eye-bolts of the Racor lift platform.

    Voilŗ!

    Overall I'm very satisfied with the Hinge Hook Hoist Bracket kit. In conjunction with the Racor lift, it makes hard top removal and storage a relatively quick and easy one-person ordeal. If you already have a Racor lift, I recommend this kit. However I don't think I can recommend purchasing a new Racor just to use with this product. When I purchased my Racor in 2017 I paid $125.99 via Amazon Prime. At the time of this writing the Racor lift is going for to $224.70 on Amazon Prime, which would make for a pretty pricey hardtop management solution.

    I'd like a lift like that, but my lights are in the way in the roof. I need to figure something out. But that would be so easy to remove the roof. Looks good

    I'm thankful I snagged that Racor a couple of years ago. I mean it is now so easy. My wife said it's her favorite mod. Lol. It's now easier and quicker to remove and install the hard top that it is the soft top.

    Does your new lift work with 37ís? Hopefully you can still drive.
