I received the Top Lid cover on 9-14-2021 and was amazed with the workmanship that I found at the unboxing stage. I found that even though the delivery from the carrier was found to be poor with box torn and damaged, the lids were not damaged at all. Also during the unboxing found components well packed and with film coating that not only protected the lid it also held feed door components in tact. Lid was installed and all additional cut outs and fit perfect fits.
I am definitely giving this a A-1 rating and also will make the arrangements to cover my second tank when returned.
The detailed work on this lid made for a perfect fit. My measurements were checked and rechecked and the finished product could not be better.
Months of close collaboration with the Toplids crew on design and fit led to an amazing final result. The attached image shows just how close the tolerance was with the overflow box. The lid had to sit over it but I didn't want the box too low to result in a low waterline. Weekends never stopped the crew from answering my questions. UNS makes showcase tanks so the lid design has to be subordinate and minimalist. It must never out compete the tank for attention. Toplids understood this and I'm very happy with the outcome.
Completely amazed with the great quality and detail of the lid, cannot be compared to any other lid manufacturer. Best online shoping experiences i had , 100% hassle free , Tyler was able to capture my vision , fred made it a model and Tops lids made it a reality. The feed cup is also a great product definately makes feeding frozen food easier, is actually built the same size as the feeder door and sits perfecty in the cut out .
I was looking for something that was aesthetically unique as well as functional for my RedSea Reefer 170. Given that it's a cube I wanted something that favored the straight and diagonals lines that I see throughout my aquarium. After a few sketches and further discussion, we agreed that we would need to go the custom route. I drew up and designed exactly what I had in mind and shared it with Tyler, Fernando, and the rest of his team. My vision was understood and ultimately every discussion we had was catered around getting exactly what I wanted. Even when we reached a point where it was something they hadn't been done before it didn't stop them from pausing doing some research and checking in with their engineers to see it was feasible. The end result is unmistakenly a Top Lids product. Precise, well made, and of high quality, even if it doesn't look like what you're accustomed to seeing from them. Ultimately if you have a vision for something you haven't seen before, I would reach out to Top Lids because they will most likely be the ones to bring it to life.
