So I just put on my Trektop NX today and I've got a quick question. On the back, I can't seem to keep this snap hooked (on both sides). I'm not sure what they are really called, so I took a pic to try to explain what I mean. They come out every time I drive.

Give it a little time to stretch. I put mine on a month ago and was just able to get those tucked in last week.

On mine the rear window part (in that same spot) keeps the side window flap from staying in place. I have to stretch them so the tabs (inside the channel) are side by side.

So you overlap them? Would happen to have a pic of it would you?

No I don't, and the Jeep in nekid right now. But yea, the flap from the side window overlaps the rear window. Then finagle the tab on the rear window flap so it goes into the channel next to (closer to the center of the Jeep) the tab for the rear window. It might take a little time for it to stretch enough. Also make sure the zipper pull string isn't in the way, I usually hang it out to the side so it doesn't take up more room under the flap.

I'll get some pictures for you when the top goes back on mid week for the rain.
