Had that problem, called the door manufacturer and got a replacement scissor latch. Prompt shipment. Have not had problem since replacement.

Update: I used JB weld on top of the "detent button" to make it a tad taller. I had to sand it down a bit to get the right amount of resistance, then some white grease. Will see how long the JB weld lasts

With that type of "Latch" a big enough wind and it won't matter what you do.

I have the hard latch (Arm that goes in a slot) it usually works.


Home is where I park it.
