Hi folks!

Just bought a Suzuki Vitara JLX (93 plate) on Sunday!
Having never owned a soft top before.... Short of fitting an alarm, is there anyway to make it more secure as people can just unzip the back window?

Thanks

Get a padlock and a d ring type fitting, fix the fitting to the inside of the car where the zip hangs and padlock through the zip and then through the fitting, it just means you've got to climb into the back to undo the padlock.

The other option is, do nothing, leave nothing in the car of value and if someone wants to break in they might at least have the decency to unzipp the back instead of break a window or slash the roof.

Me too. Thought I'd see how it goes before I put one on mine. And no probs in the nearly 4 years I've had it. And on the plus side, I've locked my keys in the car a couple times....unzipping the back window and climbing in to get the keys out the ignition while a police car drives past makes for an akward moment.
