Plastic part of Top Hardware

Last time I put my Soft Top back on I broke one of the plastic feet in the back that slides in the channel. The bottom piece in the back corner on the drivers side, that connects the support frame to the jeep.

Does anybody know what this is called and where I can get a replacement?

I don't see it on Quadratech.

Thanks.

Had the issue a few years ago, had to buy a full hardware replacement set, about $100. Even the stealership didn't carry anything that would work... next time I'm just gonna make my own out of billit stock

That's not the answer I wanted. I've been trying to figure out how to build a replacement.

So far my idea includes grinding the head of a bolt down to fit into the channel, then bending and welding something in the right shape.

Try calling D A V E Y S J E E P S . C O M - Parts Specials and see if he has the lower foot your looking for. He has alot of things on the shelves in his warehouse that aren't on his pages on his site. Worth a try...

I ended up making my own bracket. A 3/8" bolt head fits in the slot nicely. I found a bolt the same length as the bracket and welded two nuts, one on each end. A 3/8 nut on one side and a 1/4 on the other side. I then drilled a hole through the tube just big enough for a 1/4 inch bolt. So far it works just fine.
