Yup - I'm here with another bonehead question. I'm clearly missing something here... I get the top out of it's hole, the two round pegs on the main part of the frame snap into their slots and hold up everything else. I place the rear cross member below the rear window into the two slots. I push up on either side of the frame to stretch it out, and it's impossible. Is it supposed to snap shut so I can then attach the two hooks to the windshield post? If I don't connect the the rear cross member, then it seems to work with the obvious shortcoming! I think it's a trees-forest thing.
