Bikini tops

Have a 2002 TJ I got my detachable header in today for my bikini top , it is a bestop but when I slide the top in it just come right out. It seen like the header won't hold it or am I doing it wrong. Help.

Sounds like you have the wrong header for the model bikini top you have. My '98 came with a header but no top. I ordered a Bestop safari and it was the same as you are experiencing. I checked with Bestop and got the header model # needed for the model safari I had and ordered that header (screw in style that used the same holes already drilled for the existing header) New header channel was narrower opening and safari top plastic header edge fit right in and stayed in place.

Mine was very difficult the first couple of times, too. Try lossely putting the center strap on first, then try to work the plastic strip into the header, being very gentle with the whole thing or it falls out. Just keep working it.
