My "mid-fold" top was like that.  One hand up and one hand down  
(apart from doing up/undoing the clips on the top of the  
windscreen.... unless you have strong hands).

Often did that when it started to rain - stop at lights and pull the  
top over.  Maybe 15 seconds to get it sorted.

Ahhh memories (the top still hangs on the wall of my shed).
