Ruh Roh - something sticking out of roof

Anyone ever see this happen?

Yes - its a Velcro strap which wraps around one of the tensioning arms.
Put the roof in the maintenance position and re wrap around the arm. If you are not sure, look on the opposite side for actual location.

PS - nice leopard skin tights & pink underwear.....

This happens on my new top almost every time I use it. Starting to get old now thinking I may have to permanently attach as the Velcro wont hold in place

I used a paper stapler to stop the Velcro pulling apart.
Its been like that for about 5-6 years.....

I just cut mine off several months ago. No problems, even with all the storms lately. No, not the "right" fix, but I was sick of it. YMMV.
