With some tops you can retrofit OEM latches (I have some laying around I am going to try and fit), some you can't.

For an added safety measure, I have safety wired the side latches closed & safety wired the top to the car. (I don't take the top off much in the summer, and it makes it a bitch to steel lol )
pictures of said saftewired latch please.

I will be finishing my safety wire job this weekend (just got some better cap screws). I'll snap some pics after its done. I did a pretty good job the first time, but if I am posting pics I want to set a good example and do it the right way. lol
