Any recommendations on an electric hoist for a hardtop?

I was looking at their electric hoist motor but was curious about what sling kit to use.

Several of the Corvette aftermarket suppliers sell a sling kit.

I bought a Harbor Freight winch and made my own with 8 pulleys and some 3/8" rope.

Sorry this second photo upload sideways. :-)
