Thanks !
Definitely different than what I got from Moss. Same bracket style fastened to the frame but yours seems to have a latch while mine from Moss have hooks to attach to the window frame which  is not correct no matter how I arrange it.
Guess I need to go back to the various catalogues to find the correct part and associated number.
Thanks again !

Here are a few photos of what an original one looks like, not sure if the ones from Moss are the same. One thing to remember as well is that the legs that go into the chassis part of the car just behind the doors must also be adjusted, there is a bolt with nuts that must be raised or lowered so that your top stays taut and does not fold when driving.

Can someone tell me or send me a photo of their tie down locks going from the soft top frame of a BN7 to the windshield. I bought the apparently proper pair from Moss awhile ago and even after shortening the J hook it is still far too long to hold the soft top to the window frame. They may be correct for some soft top frames and definite fit on my top frame. I am fairly certain my frame is correct but not so certain re the window frame. so, I am wondering of there are different clasps for different 2 seaters...

Are theses frames interchangeable?
MY car had the frame with the bent legs, but I just got one with straight legs. I can't locate my bent leg frame. So, can I use the straight one? I am fitting a new, but already complete top I bought.
Thanks, Happy New Years to all.
