Every time I have to open this hatch I dread putting it back on. Every time I'm successful getting it closed, I think, 'now why was that so hard?" because when the stars align, it is very easy.
Well, this last time, I have been unable to get the stars to align. The door has been held on with PACKING TAPE (for crying out loud!) for weeks now. Every once in a while, when I am feeling particularly aligned with the stars, i go out and try my hand at getting the thing on there correctly. So far, no luck.
The J hinge seems to be in ok shape. it is a little malformed at one end from previous attempts... but not enough to prevent it from seating correctly, i don't think.
Help please! any tips?
