It was $175 when I bought last yearWhere can you buy the Racor for well under $200?
Yikes didn't realize they went out of business.They RACOR lift has been manufacturer discontinued. There are some still available on Amazon but they are over $200 now. That could be why Topsy's is coming out with there own lift system.
The brackets are part of the Topsy Hinge Hook Hoist Bracket kit (http://www.topsyproducts.com/products/hinge_hook_hoist_bracket), NOT part of the Racor Ceiling Storage Lift (http://www.racorstoragesolutions.com/p/detail/phl-1r?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1).do the brackets for the back window hinges come with the racor kit?
Or bought separately. i'd like to score a couple of those
I've only got a minute but if you do a search there is another thread on how people hoisting their top off and you'll see that people do use the Topsy brackets with ratchet straps,This might be a stupid question but I built my own lift with ratchet straps but I'm looking for a better way to secure them to the top. Will the topsy brackets work? has any body used brackets like this?
I looked up Racor on Amazon and read the description, I think it's the same:I’m not sure if the
CEILING STORAGE LIFT
is the same as what most people have bought in the past, but Topsy lists this on their website as a suggestion to buy for their parts to use.
It’s $225 on amazon and hasn’t changed price over last couple of months. Then getting the Topsy parts to beef it up, puts the overall price over $300. Which is fine with me. But if Topsy comes out with similar one for around that $300 price, I think I’d like to give that a try. My luck it would be closer to $400 or more though. Ha.
Racor is not out of business. I talked to them on the phone 2 days a goIt was $175 when I bought last year
