Screwing Around

I love the Freedom Top but I hate screwing around with it. There has to be a better way to secure that last bit. I don't mind the latches but the screw things kind of suck. There has to be a better way.

Does an alternative exists?

Yes, don't put them in. I have run for years without them. I put them in occasionally. No leaks no issues. If you have an 09 or newer it has the front latch at the windshield that will keep them on tight.

I keep mine in but just tight enough so they dont move, they are a pain, sometimes I leave them out. If they were too tight the front/middle seam would leak when raining.

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

Me too, I haven't had the screws in the freedom part for at least a year and a half. No problems. It makes it real easy and quick to remove the freedom parts.

This is true if you are only running the fronts flip your spacer down and use the bolts to secure the front panels.
