Screws.
 
I took the soft top off this morning and I stupidly lost the screws that go to the arms. They attach to the part of the sport cage behind the front seats. Anybody know what size they are and where I can get them?

I'm assuming you mean locally...Not sure you are going to have luck there other than going to a dealership. If you can wait, get them through Quadratec. If you go through them they have cool disconnects to replace the screws.

Or go to lowes or other hardware store.Pick up some cottor pins in 1/4'' and a few washers and the cotter keys....take them off anytime and no tools needed.

I think you're referring to the Pivot Knuckle Bolt (#V below).
Attachment 19171

The problem with replacing this bolt with hardware store stuff is that you need the bows to pivot smoothly, yet still fit snugly. Because of wind pressure, there's a lot of stress at that connection point, so a loose fit may cause issue.

The cotter pin solution is fine, but might be a short term thing, unless you get a really nice fit.

You can call 800-845-3567 and ask our support team for some. Don't know what we charge, but it's always a little more than it should be (we aren't really in the parts business). Quad may also carry them. They cant' cost that much.

For $25 bucks you can get "quick release bow knuckles" that use a little spring mounted pin. It's a nice upgrade.
