help please, rear window zipper problem on new top

I have been outside installing my new sunrider today when I got to the last step, the rear window. First let me say I have never owned a soft top so it's all new to me. Okay, my rear window zipper on the top itself has 2 zipper pulls? Second, they are aligned weird. meaning if I put them both in the lower left corner where the zipper is supposed to start, they look like this:

---> <-----

I will add a picture in a minute but I wanted to see what your response was asap. I don't get how I am supposed to get the window on. Is this normal or a mess up from bestop? Help!

did you hook the zippers on at the bottom left. then pull the top zipper all the up and over to the right side and leave the bottom one on the left?

HA, I did now. I was on the phone with bestop right after this post (should have thought of that first, but hey, I guss I trust you guys more!). The lady walked me through it perfectly. I am done now and will post some pics of the new top soon. Thanks for the quick reply.

this is the correct way as he said. i had trouble with my rear window staying attached in the two side mounts. they would not stay under them. i called bestop yesterday and i have a new one on the way.

bestop does seem like a good company. I got mine on and all figured out. Now if I only had a pretty weekend to go out......

The zippers are like that so you can zip up each side and roll the window up with out taking it off all the way.
Its great for those nice in the middle of winter were you dont wont to bother taking everything off!
