Mercedes Benz SL hard top suspended by a rmovable top hoist

The SL hardtop hoist incorporates a lightweight aluminum tube (drawn 6061 T6) with each end rotary draw bent to 90 degrees and then encased into a high-density foam tube. The assembly constitutes a very lightweight, sturdy and upholstery-friendly Support Cradle which avoids paint and weather stripping. This protective cradle is then joined to a harness of nylon seat belt webbing sewn to the correct length required for proper balance (no hooks - no adjusting).   Hardtops can be suspended indefinitely.  All three lifting systems include, of course, the support cradle and harness assembly as well as all necessary installation hardware.  Installation times average between 30 minutes and 45 minutes.

Mercedes SL (1972-1989) on Manual Hoist

The earlier Mercedes SL chassis numbers 113 and 107 have their side window weather stripping exposed in such a way that the Support Cradle, even with the foam padding, cannot be applied. Fortunately, the drip rails can be utilized to securely grasp and perfectly balance these hardtops with towers and a cross bar like you see here.
