I have 08. There's 3 L-shaped on drivers panel plus the above the windshield. Plus the screw-in bolt. My L-handles located 2 above drivers head L&R shoulder area, and 1 on the R forward middle, plus the front windshield metal clasp.
On the passenger side there is just one, above the right shoulder.
The latches just grab onto the U bracket when the top is sitting it it's proper position. Don't over think this, I had the same question until using it a few times. It's perfectly positioned, and if it doesn't fit right then your top is not right.
get in--buckle up--hang on
