Bestop Supertop NX sunroof issue

We installed the soft top this weekend and all appears to be in order. But when I flip back the sunroof, at about 35 mph, the top layer if the folded back material poofs up like a sail. I've attached a couple pics from after I parked at home - I think you can still see what I'm referring to. Any ideas as to what we need to do to keep this from happening? Thank you!!!

NMW,

Beofre you put the strap on the bows, is the top folded up nicely? I always had issues with mine sailing up like that when it wasn't folded nice. You can always move the strap farther back to keep it from opening up at speed.

You could also try to get another set of straps and run 4 instead of 2. that might help remedy the problem. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions!

If it's anything like the factory top (& I'm pretty sure that it is), you don't have it folded properly. The fabric should form a sideways W shape when folded back like that.


Here's a pic from another thread on the subject:
