They should be fully stretched with the roof up, no play, the big give away is how the roof sits when it's down, have a look at the before and after pics.

Well put Greenman. Or as Clarkson said commenting on some cars handling "tauter than Vanessa Maes G string"

Ah so you shouldn't be able to pull it down with your finger like in your pic?

Thats dead sloppy like mine and floppys (is that a poem?), you should only just be able to get your finger behind it.

Your may still have enough stretch to put the bar in the right place, like I said the before and after pictures are the give away. My S lives outside for the winter thats probably what killed them so I guess they have a finite lifespan.

Sorry to be a pain just want to know if I should get these, here is my straps as normal and when I pull them down using little pressure:





As you can see it sits quite tight but can still be pulled down easily, here is how far the roof goes down:



All help appreciated!
