Even with the t-tops locked they still fly off when on highway. Would it be the seals or something else?

2nd gens (Fisher) only has a thin piece of the window trim on the top itself for the tabs on the car to secure to. If those are broken/torn then your tops could still come up.

4th gens have a center beam that the entire edge of the T slides under.
Make sure that is secure and centered. I can't speak to third gens.
