The ones with the snaps are for rolling up your rear soft top window.

However that is REALLY not a good idea, unless you don't mind if the window gets scuffed up. Rolling it without something to protect it is not good for any of the windows...

Its for when you remove your soft top, it keeps it closed. The soft stretchy elastic loops with snaps are for rolling up the back window, not the hard plastic tabs. There is a second set of snaps that you can snap those down to keep them from hanging down while the top is in use.

Soft Top HELP!!!

If you remove the top without hooking them, the spring assist will make it quite difficult to keep the frame neatly folded while off the Jeep. The straps keep the spring assist compressed when the weight of the top isn't doing so.

Whatever you do, don't cut them off the Jeep. When new, there's a paper hang tag warning you about this.

Also, the snap is to slide them out of the way and snap at the top of the bow when the top is installed. Prevents you from having the strap from flapping around or getting damaged if pinched in the folding frame or damaging the frame if getting pinched.

Here's a bit more on them:

These aren't for the soft top. You stuff them in your glove compartment to keep the CD's from rattling around.

Amateurs!
