Always: Leave a new top and glass or plastic window in the up position for a minimum of 24 hours for tops made in PVC vinyl toppings, and one week for tops made in cloth toppings, after our products were installed.
As convertible top frames age, links and joints wear and top frames do not have the same alignment as when convertibles were new. Leaving convertible tops and glass windows in the up position after installation allows them time to relax and adjust, or become “seasoned” to the top frame.
Always: Follow the instructions in your Owner’s Manual for lowering and raising your top. Always keep the top well area free of objects, especially if a glass window is installed with your top. Even harmless looking objects such as beach towels can cause glass windows to break. Objects in your top well can further cause unnecessary wear and stress on top frames, plus cause damage to your top and to plastic windows as well.
Always: Unlatch top at front before unzipping, or zipping window closed before latching for any convertible top, glass or plastic window, unless different instructions appear in your owners manual or Robbins brochure.
Always: Try and keep your top, Tonneau cover, glass or plastic window, etc., clean.
Do not: Raise or lower convertible tops, glass or plastic window assemblies when the temperature is below 40°F (5°C) since this can cause damage to the topping, plastic windows and other components.
Do not: Lower your convertible top, glass or plastic window when the top is wet, to avoid discoloration or other damage to the topping or inside backing.
Do not: Store away wet top boots or tonneau covers, to avoid discoloration and shrinking that can cause these products to no longer fit.
