Holding down the hard top???

Theres gotta be a better way to do this using metal screws sucks. I like the way the TJs clamp down on each side. Anyone come up with a better way to do this?

Most kinds of clips or clamps that I can think of would leave too much of the clip on the window frame when the top was off... It shoud be fairly easy to use some sort of clip or lever set-up though...good idea. You'd need to mount something to the window frame for the clamp to grab on to though...

i have a targa hard top and the front clips down sorta like the tj, its just a smaller clamp but same idea, and all it leaves on the windshield frame is a small loop on either side

I just bought a hard top from a friend and he gave me the quik clamp kit from Quadratec. Im about jalfway done installing it. Ive go the quick release bolt retainers riveted in and now Im ready for the new seals and to put it on.....

So far an easy install.

I will be adding a hardtop soon. Sounds like a good idea. Gonna buy that kit. Anyone got a catalog code I can use for a discount? I have never ordered from Quadratec b4.

I've seen the clamps that quadra tech has. Let me know if there worth the $$ or not.

I also aw those clips like the TJ's have on Ebay. You could probably get it cheaper there than quadratec. I am also guilty of never bolting down the winshield part of the hardtop. I always say I'll get around to it but I never do. Every bump I hit reminds me it's still not done.
