    Hey Hey,

    Just had an unfortunate mishap with my pop top on my way home today, a storm rolled in and a big gust of wind snapped the straps holding the pop top down and it lifted up, luckily it didnt blow off but i had to sit in the back for half hour holding it down until the storm passed haha was an interesting experience.

    Anyway, my question is, what are you pop top guys using to hold down your pop tops ? i will get some pics of what was holding mine down which in hindsight are pretty weak.

    I see you are “enjoying the ride”, in more ways than you may have wanted too......:eek:

    Over to David H - please enlighten this member about the aerodynamics of a pop top, and the ways to combat this, to ensure not have a repeat experience. ;)

    (I’ve only got a “tin top”, so haven’t been down your path.)

    i use a little bit of cord that secures the spring loaded hook to the clip .
    So that it won't move and unclip . FB_IMG_1512990327572.jpg FB_IMG_1512990319285.jpg
