Boxster Hardtop install

Going to install a hardtop in the boxster. I see the install kits but never a mention of the handles to release the top to remove. Is this part or is there a different way to remove the top once installed Thanks

Windshield latching mechanism is similar to softtop. Comes with the roof.

The handles are integral to the hardtop so there is no extra piece to install for them. They do have adjustment points, so it is conceivable that someone could remove those handles. They are available for about $150 each. But any hardtop should come with them.
