Hard Top Question

I have a hard top. Instead of the normal bolts, I saw someone somwhere that had easier to get off bolts. Does anyone have pictures of somthing like this, or a link? Thanks.

Just a regular bolt... need the thread though.

I'm going to be getting some of those "Quick Clamps" though, as I fint the bolts tend to work themselves loose after a while, and I don't really carry a screw driver in the Jeep like I should.

I used 1/4''x 2'' toggle bolts with a washer. Nothing special. Got it free at work, but it will cost probably less then $3 at the hardware store.

I never did understand the theory on the Kwik Kit hardware that can be bought.

I can get all six of my original hardtop bolts out in less than 5 minutes.

How much of a hurry do I really need to be in beyond that?

I think that company is in a hurry to make $60.00 X ????????????????
