I'm looking for the name of the part that attaches to the top bows, and keeps the bows from moving around. They're like struts that go from one side of the car to the other, and attach through the top loops into the bows.

Every convertible has them. And this isn't a trivia question; my Cat is missing them, and I need to know what to ask for!

Anybody know what they're called?

Just two, the third bow is filled with tacking material. The decorative strip on the top is stapled through the roof into this material.
