The OEM hardtop latches are still good, as they offer options for adjustment and repair. 

Should you experience wind noice or even knocking noise going over uneven roads check the following.

The picture shows the adjustment option for the front.

The rear is adjusted in a similar way. If can feel a play in the hardtop, resting on it - try to adjust. It should feel snug and tight.

At last, check the latch caps - these plastic parts tend to age and crack or break. Replacement parts can still be sourced.

Please exculse the oxidated hardtop latches on the pictures - these were a spare set I had in the garage for while, but good enough to show the idea.
