Buy a pair of these top lock caps!
I was about to spend $140 for a replacement softtop latch, and tried these top lock caps first. Replacing them really worked! The right side was giving me the most trouble (it kept randomly springing open, especially if I hit a bump). When I pulled the latch off, the entire end of the cap was broken way and missing. Replacing the cap fixed the issue, so I replace the left side cap too. With quick adjustments, both latches are now working like new! The caps were so easily replaced too! You remove the latch by unscrewing three screws, then the cap is held on by a smaller single screw. I think I'll buy another pair for spares.

Inexpensive & Effective
I was having lots of wind noise because my top wasn't closing tightly due to worn latches. These little pieces of plastic took away that wind noise and also stopped a small water leak that would trickle through in heavy rain.

Worth the $4 - When available, add to your cart
I checked my top lock caps and found that maybe 1/3 of the plastic still existed. I believe that was causing a lot of the vibrations and squeaking near the latches. I installed a pair of these in under 10 minutes total and went for a drive. The latch noises stopped entirely because now there was a full nub of plastic in there to make a tighter fit. Totally worth the $4 each for these basic maintenance items.
