Just checking in to say that I will be avoiding this deeply scandalous thread with its ringer of a Subject line, where each reply only doubles down on the corruption. Plus, I don't run a top box. So, goodbye to this den of iniquity with its thrusting, lubricating, gasket adjusting, button pushing, mounting and dismounting.... I'm going to take a cold shower now...  :761: :015:

Same here, slight downward pressure and latch opens much easier. I'd think there has to be some pressure on the gasket for a good seal. What about a dab of (plastic-safe) grease on the latch surfaces where it slides or smoothing those areas more? Feels kinda rough on mine.

I did not see any obvious adjustments for the latch, Did not try loosening the screws to see if it would slide up/down yet.

I looked for something to adjust but as you say nothing. I've tried lubing the rubbers and the latch mechanism but neither worked. My last thought is to dremmel the inside lip of the lid where it catches as I think I can figure out where the tight spots are.

Anyone (Sonny I'm sure does) who wants to see my tight box in action can do so below:

Givi replied today asking for details of how old the box etc. was and said the latches on the lid and mechanism may be bent, which got me thinking... I wonder if i could bend them to release a little bit easier, I'll attack them with a heat gun on the weekend I think.

Be careful "forcing" those little ears/tabs on the front edge of lid.

Mine caught on garage door and easily snapped the coloured infill panel,😥😳 £60 to replace.

John, is that your garage or the dealership    :notsure:
Ha ha it's work - we have several thousand people on site and several bike shelter things dotted around. It a fully secure site so they don't need locked so it's ideal. Lucky for me as it's where it is overnight tonight :157:
