Land Rover bimini top snaps

How do I get my Land Rover bimini top to stay snapped (on the sides) on the freeway...
the top is new... does it need to stretch for awhile?

Are you talking about the snaps (I think there is 3 on each side) above the doors where the top of the door top normally is (well just above) or the 2 on the top of the windshield frame? Either way are you sure you have them snapped all the way. On my tops sometimes you have to really push on them to get them to snap together.

Also, kind of off topic but, is there a way to repair snaps that have broken on the tops? Two of the snaps have come apart on my surrey top.

If you have a marine shop or marina near you, I'd go there. Boat tops seem to be more pleantiful that truck tops. Also, compared to the truck/convertible shops in my area, boat guys are nicer (no I do not own a boat).
Dumb question - I assume TN has a lake or two
