hard top popping loose...

the hard top clips keep coming unlatched whenever i hit a bump on the highway, or a really big bump on a gravel road...


is there a way to adjust the latch? if not, any suggestions?

Take the top off? Actually, if you put something on the latch or where it connects to, that should tightened it. Use something like a piece of rubber hose or tubing in the "J" part of the latch.

it is getting latched right, if i flex the jeep, or jar the jeep just right it pops out of place...


it did not happen tonight, maybe it only does it when it is warm out
