Hardtop Quick Release recommendations?

Looking at a couple of quick release for my hardtop.

Anyone with experience with either of these?

Got some thumbscrew type on ebay a couple years ago... have worked well for a few on and off's every summer... Check Fleabay, I think they were cheaper than those...

the po of my jeep swapped out the original bolts for some with wing nuts. looks like standard fare from the hardware store. i havent taken it off yet, but it seems like it will be pretty easy as soon as it warms up some. might be quicker/easier/cheaper than ordering some off the net.

Same here. For two years anyway. Besides I only take my Hard top off once a year, put the soft top on, then hard top back on in the fall.

back when I had a hard top I swapped out the torx bolts for some eye bolts, washers and square nuts
(wont spin when tightening). it was a cheap trip to the hardware store and a few mins to swap them
out, and you gain 6 new tie down spots
