Angry Dam broken Latch on my bestop 2 piece hard top!

Im rip-shit right now. My friend was lending a hand putting the front portion of my 2 piece hard-top back on and even with me saying at least 4 times to let me do the latches he got cocky and said he could handle the 2 on his side and ended up snapping off one the latches. It didnt pull out of the top itself but the 2 dowel pins that hold the lever to the hook latch snapped off. I took a look at he other 3 and they appear as they may be soon to follow. I now have an email out to bestop and quadratec to see if I can get my hands on a new complete set of latches. I dont know who to be more pissed off at. My friend for not listening to me or bestop for putting such weak latches on a near $3k top.

-end rant

If your friend is a friend he will pay for the latch(s)... If you hadn't warned him or asked him to "not" then the onus would be on you. If I broke 'em I'd buy you a new set.

Well I finally got through to Bestop and found out that they only go for a little under $7 each. I was actually shocked and figued that they would be at least >$20 a pop with what bestop charges for their products. I ordered a total of 6 just in case and feel much better now.
