Help?! I cannot open the latches on my soft top.

I recently bought a 2017 JKU Sahara. It had the hard top on when I bought it, but came with a soft top. We put the soft top on a week ago, and enjoyed driving with it open for a few days until rain forced our hand.

Now that the weather is beautiful again, I’m trying to open it up, but there is no way to get my fingers up under the latch to pull it open. The only way I can pop them open is to use a small screwdriver as leverage.

Here are two pictures of what the latch looks like.

HELP??

There is a little rubber nub that spaces that out and are most likely missing.

I have one missing on ps on my soft top.

Mine’s an aftermarket Bestop, but can’t you hold them by the sides and pull down rather than trying to get under the front?

This is what I do I find it easier to pull down.
