Broken Steelhorse Hardtop Hardware Fix?

I have a two piece Steelhorse hard top on my YJ. Two of the clamps used to hold down the targa top (front piece) have broken. There is a little hook on one end that hooks to the rollbar. That little hook broke. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there replacement hardware from another company or something that I could swap out? I'll try to take some close up pictures later but I found some steelhorse hardtop interior pictures online.

scroll down to "Hardware" and look for draw latches to see the many different types available

I just picked up this same top for the TJ.
Could you post pictures of how the targa mounts to the roll bars?
Much appreciated!

Whats the part number of the latches you bought? I couldn't find a direct replacement.

My first time on this board, and I don't want to hijack the thread...........maybe enhance the thread for more of our benefits. I'm addressing my first need as the proud 1 day owner of a '95 YJ. I'm sure I can figure this out, but why waste my brain cells if somebody else has this worked out.

My PO has put draw latches that hold the Targa to to the windshield frame. There is nothing at the back of it and the main to has two of four mounts it should have. It made it home on the freeway, but I was a little concerned.
