Post Bestop 1/2 doors and latch

My 85 CJ7 came with Bestop 1/2 soft doors that are in perfect shape but when I put them on I don't see how they are supposed to latch shut. Is there supposed to be an adapter or something that attaches to the tub door frame? If so, can that part be purchased separately?

Unhappy

I emailed Bestop and acted dumb, like someone said, and they are going to send new strikers free. They wont send new door rotory latches free, but the strikers will be free. I don't care, as long as the doors stay closed.

Thanks guys.

Thumbs up

Got the free striker and put them on Sunday. They work great. Keep the doors closed and the best part is they were free from Bestop. Thanks Bestop.
