Sounds like you need to go somewhere else for your install as a start. Also sounds like the spring tensioner is not properly set up. There are lots of Utube videos on line showing installs of slide toppers for basic knowledge, but if you need a professional install I would suggest a reputable Dealer who knows what they are doing.

Carefree of Colorado slide toppers have integral roller locks. One on the right end of a small topper and one on each end on the larger toppers. The locks are adjustable. There is an installation guide on the C of C website that explains how to properly adjust the locks. Just be aware that 100 mile per wind can overwhelm the gust locks. All you need to do is drive 60 mph and be hit by a 60 mph gust. Welcome to spring travel in west Texas.
