Default Anyone do a DIY targa top hanger?

I'm looking to make a wall mount for the top, and seeing if there's anything more interesting than a simple hangall mount lined with pool noodle.
It looks like the dedicated ones for sale hook around the stems of the forward latches? Any issues with the weigh being hung on those? Sounds like a liability for cracking plastic.
Anyone make their own with corner brackets or some such? Or reviews of the premade ones?

I run two tops. So one needs to be stored. I prefer a caddie to store the top.
It sits on the floor and I can roll it around.
I have seen store bought wall systems before. Just cant remember where at the moment.
Good luck
