one of the pull straps in the back that pulls to make the top taut broke today while putting my back window on. it's the strap that is pulled through the little pulley that has teeth to tighten. no idea how to even repair it. have had the top for about three/four years now and every season there is unfortunately something new that happens.

Were you pulling on it hard? They're going to get more brittle over time. I broke one of mine from cranking it too hard, learned my lesson and took it easy on the other straps and never had any more problems. For the price, I think it's the best bang for the buck top you can get.

I now have a really nice frameless, STRAPLESS wall hanger. Every strap has disintegrated into black fine dust. It's sucks because the rest of the top is in great shape. I guess I'm either going to pay an upholstery to sew new straps back on this "inexpensive" top or just duct tape it. Depending on what the repair shop wants, I might just put that money towards a new Bestop NX since they have a rebate going on.
My back straps (both) came apart about 2 years ago. I took the top piece to a marine sail/boat canvas shop nearby, and they made new straps and sewed them on for about $20. New straps are as good as new, and you can tell the material is better. Two years and going on the $20 new straps.
