Spiderwebshade grommet holes don't line up with soundbar screws

Does anyone else have mis-aligned center grommet holes that will not allow the two large screws that hold the front freedom tops to be inserted through the soundbar? We would like as advertised to keep the webshade on the same time the hardtop is on. There is no way ours can be the only defective top. They are about an inch off. We have an email into the spiderwebshade company about this.
Anyone else have this problem?

I bought the SpiderWeb SW1 JK-2D TrailMesh top for my JK. Are you sure you purchased a spiderwebshade for a JK and not another model Jeep? I'm pretty sure that all of the tops for JK's do not have "holes" in the middle of the top. There are plenty of grommet holes on the side of the spiderwebshade to position it anywhere you want on your rollcage. Mine pretty much looks like the picture on the website, and I absolutely love it!

They have a free option to add grommets in the center for use with the Freedom Top screws if you have a hardtop. It's not shown on the website, but it's an option you can request.


OP -- I'm sure this is a stupid question, but are the grommets both equidistant from the center? If not, did you try flipping it over?

The two grommet holes should have been placed about an inch further back so unfortunatley flipping over the top wont help but thanks for idea.

SPIDERWEBSHADE /// with Freedom top

Hey Texasflusher,

Have you tried to release a few of the SpiderBalls in the front and rear? If you release some of the tension you can wiggle to top into position for you bolts. Then you can replace the SpiderBalls as they will stretch quite a bit.

If for some reason this does not work we will be happy to replace your top.

Hope this helps! We loved your video!!!

Thanks SpiderWebShade for yesterday's response. My wife and I worked more with the top today to see if we can keep the shade top on the same time as the hardtop. With all the hardtop's latches needing secured above the front seat and being obstructed by the shade top, it's seems easier to just remove the shade top entirely when the hardtop goes on. With that said, there is no longer a need to have the grommet holes match where the soundbar screws go.

Has SpiderWebShade or anyone else made a video on installing the 3-piece unlimited hardtop over the shade top? I would love to see one.

Thanks again SpiderWebShade for your offer to replace our top for another.

Nice response from the vendor...that's great customer service!

I love my top, but never understood how you could leave it in place with the hard top for the very reasons you mention above!

"With all the hardtop's latches needing secured above the front seat and being obstructed by the shade top, it's seems easier to just remove the shade top entirely when the hardtop goes on."

I too would love to see a video on how this is accomplished!
