Soft Top Windshield Header Latches

I have a 2001 TJ and I'm getting ready to replace the soft top however I'd also like to replace the windshield channel too because the current one has the bolts through the latches. My question is, do I have to undo the bolts every time then roll the top back or is there a windshield channel with latches that I could replace? Right now it's just easier to pull the top out of the channel and roll it back than it is to remove those bolts every time. Or am I missing something simple that would make this easier and less time consuming?

In the Bestop demo video for the TJ year group they clearly use quick release latches but for the life of me I can't find just a new channel.

Thanks as always,
Nate

You should check salvage yards.

You need factory soft top frame.

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.
