Talking New Jeep owner question

This is probably a dumb question.......But when I remove my hard top is there a place to put the electrical cable and washer fluid hose that disconnects for the rear of the top to protect it or does it just flop around?

Good question. There ought to be a place to secure those, but there ain't.

I just tuck it under the carpet.

There are two black plastic semicircular 'clips' behind the base of the roll bar, nearest the washer hose and electrical connector, for storage. They are marked with icons.

I jumped up an ran out to look. I see the tabs/clips you refer to and I tried to open it but did not want to break it. I assume it there a trick? Do the cables tuck underneath or do you open it and put them inside?

On another thread a guy said he unzipped the "sport bar cover" and tucked them there.
