Hard Top Torx Screw Question....

Hey guys....Removing my hardtop is not that bad and does not take a whole lot of time, my question is this. Do any of you know of, or have done anything to replace the torx screws with some sort of a "quick release" pin? I'm not even sure there is anything out there that would keep the top secure and tight to the body.....just thought I'd ask.

also, I am a proud new owner of a 2014 2dr, Silver, Willy's Wheeler. I just traded in my 2013 jku 4dr on it....love the 2dr way better than the 4dr.

Quadratec and others sell call clamps and also bolts wit attached thumb wheels or you could buy small wing headed bolts at the local hardware store along with wing nuts

I was missing a couple so I replaced them with eye bolts. Easier to use and they add nice tie down points. I put a nylock on the top so the height is set and a square nut underneath so I don't need a wrench for instal or removal. Pretty cheap too.

The torx heads were a pain to get off, I went on eBay and found a set of eight new bolts with like wing nut heads almost that are meant for being taking off by hand. I have had them for 6+ months and they work perfect, can have All the bolts off In just 2 minutes. They hold it down great I have no complaints, they were cheap too only like 20$ or under

could this be a possible "Home Depot" purchase?

Maybe I don't know if they would have the bolts. Here's an eBay page, these would all work just fine. Quick and easy http://m.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=Je...p+bolts&_pgn=1
