No, the hard top is held up by the two straps running from front to back, not side to side. Then the ends of the straps connect to the 4 cords.
I made my own hoist just using 4 eye bolts and two ratchet straps, and while dirt cheap, wasn't nearly as easy to use as this one!
Mine held up the top in the same way as the Harken with the two straps, here's a pic so you can get a visual as to how the straps run.
