2010 factory soft top

Is there a trick to get the latches in the front to latch???? It's like everything need to go forward about a half an inch and I can't get anything to budge. Thanks for any help. I am sure it is something simple but I can't figure it out.

Leave the rear corners out and rock the whole top forward. That's always worked for me.

I did try that but then the corners are up to high to get in. Is there not a way to tighten the bow assembly after it is all fastened (like you can on all the older jeeps?)

It'll stretch out eventually. I used to latch the front first, the. when it came time to connect the rear, I would pull down from the top until the corner would reach. It's probably easier with a second person, but still doable by yourself.
