Here you go snafu. There was a double roof truss running right down the middle of my garage. That is what the ceiling eyelet is in. The wall eyelet is in a stud. Took a picture of the hardware next to a tape to show the size I'd say they're at least 000 eyelets. The hooks have retaining clips so the whole thing can be taken down in a few seconds. One day I'll put an electric hoist up, but for now the come-along will do. We're supposed to have a few days of great weather so I'll take a few pictures of it with the top up soon.

Thanks Tyler! That is definitely doable. Even for an old fart like me...

Here's a little update I made today. Gets it out of the way while not in use. The 2x4s act as spacers and give a little extra clearance. I added the chain for clearance while lowering the top. It took me 15 mins to put the top back on today. No complaints here!

None. Unfortunately it's been going around us all year.
