Guys I think I messed up my soft top. I tried to put it back on and there's the clip lock on one side that is stuck into the lock position and obviously I can't get on top of the jeep because it's not aligned. Anyone know how to unlock this? I tried pulling on it like a madman to no avail.

Thanks a lot, supposed to rain soon so hopefully you guys pull though!

Hmm... it won’t unlock if there’s pressure on it but I’m sure you’ve tried that. I have no idea, other than that

I honestly am at a loss for word here. I unbolted everything and I still can't get it to unlock. Plus the thing is like upside down?

I had that happen once when it was on the Jeep. I just firmly hit it with the heel of my hand (like you were u locking it regularly, just with more force) and it unlatched.

I wanted to try but isn't there a chance to break it?
