Removed Freedom top and found these two tabs?

Took the top off of our 2011 JK for the first time this weekend (I put up a Harken Hoist - works great!). On the driver's side where the electric wiring & windshield wiper fluid hose are disconnected - at the base of the roll bar - are these two tabs. There is a little icon for each tab, one for electric and one for the wiper fluid.

I am guessing that these are somehow for the storage of the "disconnected" hose and wires?? I tried to lift up on the tabs and push the wire connector under it but it is pretty firm and I thought I might break something. I could not find any mention of them in the owners manual. Anyone?

ha! I thought the same.

You just 'pinch' each tube/cable down next to the respective tab (1 for the washer hose, 1 for electric cable). So, in essence, they just lay forward.

That's too funny! We went topless for the first time this weekend too and had the same confusion over what that was but didn't want to force it and break anything. Glad we didn't!
