Agreed! My wife got her JLU in May of '18. I built a wood cart for the hard top and we put the soft top on the next day, no issues. When my son and I removed it in the fall we forgot to wrap the protective cover around it and forgot to lock the latch mechanism. What a disaster!Note from experience: Make sure you lock it in folded down position on each side!! If not, when you pull it off the frame, the springs will rotate the mechanism and pinch your fingers between the tube supports.
