Bimini top rail windshield attachment.
by: Ronnie T

I had the exact same problem on my Maxum bimini top. One of the windshield mounts for the rail connectors broke. I scoured the interwebs for a replacement and even ordered a couple of items that I thought I could make work. In short, they didn't. Finally I decided to get creative. I took the remaining good one down to Home Depot, and stalked up and down the aisles looking for something that might fit. What I settled on was 3/4" metal pipe clamps. They are metal and come in pairs. They already have one set of holes in the smaller end which worked perfectly for the rail connections. All I had to do was drill holes in them at the location to line up with the holes in the windshield rail. It worked so well I replaced them both. So now I have super strong metal securing my bimini instead of cheap plastic. I am so happy I can't wait to gett he boat out on the water this weekend!!!!

Windshield connector
by: Tammy

This part was an OEM part and will be nearly impossible to locate.
But, with a little effort you can create one like that.
It is essentially a white nylon jaw slide that has been modified.
Take a look the link and you will see what I mean. You would have to sand it down with a grinder, buff it and drill it.

Another option that exist for you, is to retrofit both sides to a different windshield mount. Here is a link for another option for mounting on a curved surface.
