Hard Top Wall Mount

Hi, does anyone know how the hardtop wall mounts work, I would like to fix some kind of horizontal rod to my garage wall and hang the top from it, is it ok to hang the top from the two locking pins or is there a better way to do it.

Thanks.

I made one from a 2x4. I fastened it to my studs in the garage and cut a v groove to hang the top from the lock pins.
I then tied it securely against the wall to prevent the pins from coming out of the v groove by accident.
worked good and it was at waist level so I could put it on and off the 2x4 by myself.

You need to make sure the mounting points are the same as when top is on the car.
Warping is possible reportedly.

The factory wall hanger mounts with the wide part higher than the narrow part. The rear of the top mounts and locks into the upper part and the from of the top mounts to the lower cross member.

I also have the factory cover to keep most of the dust out, and it makes a nifty wall hanging if you are into garage wall art.
