I just bought a conv. top boot got all the clips on and theres no place to secure the front edge. The first time i drove with it on it was flapping all over the place. I've had some other conv. and they always had some way to secure that edge. Any suggestions?????. Thanks

You just stuff it into the crack between the top of the rear seat and the seat support. Usually takes some tugging ang pulling to get the boot into the area around the ends of the seat, but once in there it will usually stay.

I tuck it into the leading edge and it stays put. I was thinking about some velcro tape but it hasn't been necessary.

I did mine the same as Mark and Rick when I had my rs/ss convertible. I usually would put my cover in the sun for awhile to heat it up where it would stretch and go on easier and then tuck it in as they mentioned. I don't remember it ever coming out after it was tucked in. Donnie...

Thanks guys I tried that but it is very tight and very hard to get in there. I guess I'll just have to spend more time stuffing it in. Is that the way GM designed it?.
