    Lid Clips Popping Off?

    Push the lid back as far as it will go and then some.
    The front lip should be inside the lower box for the clips to stay closed.

    do u have smooth bellows or the stock accordian style? either the lid isnt seated correctly, the latches are bent out of shape, or the lid is just not very well made...just a few suggestions.

    Man......my lid fits just fine!
    Just most times guys don't know to push it all the way in so it fits inside the lower box and they have problems with the clips not locking.

    Someone posted in AAG that they were having problems with thier clips popping off so I posted this to help them, but thanks a bunch anyway nino! You're help is always welcome!

    I took a pair of needle nose pliers and bent them a tiny bit and it is fine now for 3 years.

    you have to make sure the top part of lid and all the other shit including belows are pushed back far enough, and make sure lid is seated correctly, this is a common problem
