To the OP - I have an extra set of strikers you can have for the cost of shipping - PM me.
That being said - I have the strikers because I switched to the brackets and I prefer the brackets. When removing the hard top, I only remove the bolts attached to the car. The brackets and bolts that attach to the hard top stay mounted.
Just for more info - you can actually use a toplock with either method - I have this lock on my CF hardtop and sleep easier because of it.
Essentially it blocks the latch from opening or it blocks bolts (bracket) from being removed on one side.
