I had the same problem, but there is an easy solution!

I have the JKU. Have someone get in the back seat and grab the soft top frame that is just above their head, then pull down. This should make the soft top move forward such that it is easy to engage the latches.

i used to have a hard time.. then i watched a couple videos
the key to getting it back on is to slide it forward on the rails. once the hooks are engaged its easy.

Thanks for the video we just put our first soft top on in about 1 hour! With out the video the hard top would've been put back on.
