    I never heard of adjusting them but get SFC's. My passenger side one flew off and the next I had SFC's installed. It hasn't flew off in a year.

    Your T-Top flew off and didn't break? Damn. I seen one fly of a SS going down the strip at like 120 something.

    You can adjust it a litte by taking off the cover where the holes are at. Like previously stated. Don't know how beneficial it will be.

    Most I've heard of T-tops flying off was when they didn't close the handle when putting it back on. If you're going to be going really fast, I would recomend locking them.

    I apologize, I didn't mean to make it sound like it didn't break. It did break, I got one from a buddy the very next day. He was putting it away for the winter. The one I lost I am pretty sure it broken when it landed, but the only pieces we found were part of the latch and the gasket.

    My car has some pretty bad stress dimples and I know how much they help stiffen the car up so thats why i think it flew off.

    It is real easy to adjust just take the black cap off with the hole in it and loosen plate under the cap and push it down slightly and tighten back up.. stoped the whistling because it fit tighter against the seals.
