Great! Thanks! I’m going to be gathering up supplies and hope to get it done before this weather turns cold!

Main bar is 72”, front straps are 32.5” each and rear straps are 39” each. All strap measurements are center of metal grommet to center of metal grommet.

The main bar at 72” gives you a nice handhold on each end for guiding.
straps are mounted 3” from each end of the main bar.

Appreciate it Dale! I'm ordering the parts from Amazon today.

I'm thinking about using the Harbor Freight 440 Lb Electric Hoist...

I'm thinking that this should be fine as the top only weighs 75 lbs. Thoughts?

I did’t use that one because of low clearance on my ceiling and needed to put the winch on the wall.....your choice needs to mounted to the ceiling and lift strait up. It will be more than sufficient if you have the clearance (Tall ceiling)

Makes sense. I do need the top to come as close to the ceiling as possible. I thought I could mount it high on the back wall of the garage and run directly to the pulley. I did watch a video of the 440 lb hoist and didn't like how jerky the operation was, so I will probably go the same route as you did.

DaleG, thank you very much for the detailed instructions and measurements. I used your design with a couple of mods for my application and had it working last week. I ended up using the HF 440lb hoist mentioned above and mounted it an a trolley using a section of Unistrut. This allows me to pull off the top and slide it back about 3 feet further into my garage. Again, thanks for the "heavy lifting" on this project.

We were practically neighbors. We live on the north side of Garland in the Firewheel area.

I was raised and grew up in South Garland and we raised our kids in Rowlett and Rockwall. At 59 I decided I was tired of N Texas winters and we came to SW Florida.

Very nice. We've raised our kids here and all went through GISD.
