Default Don't lose your Roof [Targa]!

Would you go without insurance on your Corvette? Even if it wasn't mandatory, you would likely purchase insurance.

The market has been empty for years and GM still has not figured out a way to notify you if your removable roof panel isn't latched down.

Welcome to Flying Roofs! Flying Roofs is a manual notification system to let you know if you forgot to latch down your roof. Many ask how this happens... Those that are part of the "flying roof club" know the answer. There are many people who swear to NEVER forget to latch down their roof. If that were the case, there would be no "flying roof club". It happens, and now there is a solution!

How does is happen? Most folks were distracted. Distractions come in many forms... your cell phone rings, the neighbor says "hi", there's food in the oven and your timer went off, kids are fighting, the baby is crying... either way, it happens; and it happens to thousands of people who care deeply about their car. No matter how careful people are, they forget, we ALL forget things. The worst time to be reminded that your "Forgot" to latch down your roof, is when it lifts off your car and tumbles to the ground... or hits a vehicle behind you. Can you imagine if your flying roof panel hit the vehicle behind you? Nobody wants to think of the worst, nobody thinks it will happen to them... but it does! Read the countless stories posted in forums all over the internet. There are hundreds right here on Corvette Forum. Protect yourself and your investment.

Flying Roofs is a manual warning system for your removable roof panel. When your roof is on and latched, Flying Roofs is out of site. When your roof panel is removed, Flying Roofs stays with the roof attached to the release handle. And when your roof is finally placed back on the vehicle, the Flying Roofs Notifier will be hanging there to remind you of your unlatched roof panel before you leave. Don't rely on your memory. All of us "Forget" things from time-to-time. We forget where we put our keys, wallets and cell phones, but don't forget to secure your roof. There are MANY of you saying to yourself, "This will NEVER happen to me. I am extremely careful and meticulous about my Corvette." EVERYONE says that, until it happens to them. Then three things happen: 1. You look for a new roof. 2. You blame GM for not having a warning system. 3. You ask yourself how to not let this happened again. Flying Roofs is the answer! Tested and Trusted, it's the perfect product for you!

For a small price up front, your wallet won't be empty when you need it most! Check out https://www.flyingroofs.com for more information.

For those of you that don't follow Chris at "My Corvette Life", here are a couple of videos to watch.

I popped mine on the other morning leaving for work while preoccupied. Luckily, my driveway is really long with curves. I noticed it starting to move as I was heading out.

I do think this product could potentially save a life or serious injury if it prevents a roof from flying off and hitting a pedestrian walking by or hitting a biker riding behind the Corvette. It's a creative and practical solution for those who remove their targa roof at any time. Best wishes to the inventor.

Never forgot to latch the t-tops in my 95 Firebird. But I always tested the latch by pulling up on the top. If it passed that test, I knew I'd be ok.
