question on straps to hold back window up

I lost one of the vinyl lanyards that snap on to the top and have a loop to loop around the back window when you roll it up. Several jeep part retailers have no idea what I'm talking about. I have a 2011 four door wrangler. Does anyone know of the straps I'm talking about, and where I could purchase one???

The straps on my TJ soft top are elastic with snaps and over time have gotten stretched out. I just ended up tying a couple 2(ish) foot lengths of 550 cord around the soft top frame with a clove hitch so that each end hangs over the rear window when it's rolled up. I can then easily tie a bow knot around the rolled up window and be good to go. After a while of running that way I tried out some small Nite Ize Figure 9 rope tensioners. They are quite ingenious and simple to use. I've permanently tied two of them into the rear window cords, and they are even faster and easier to use than before. I'm stuck with the hard top for now, or I'd take some pics for you all, but I'm guessing you can use your imagination
