How to close the stovetop?

I feel like an idiot as we cannot figure out how to open and close the black enamel stovetop cover w/out it coming off the hinges at the rear.

There must be an obvious trick to this that we are missing as I cannot believe that the design would cause this thing to constantly come unhinged.

Please share the secret so I can stop feeling like an idiot.

Don't know what model you have, but ours folds in the middle, the front staying down and going back.

The top has a "slot" in the rear hinge which allows it to slide down slightly when in the up position, thereby holding it securely in the up position. When closing, you have to pull it straight up prior to lowering it to the horizontal position. When opening it you need to hold up on it until it is verticle, then allow it to slip down into its secure position.

Thanks for verifying that we were doing it correctly in the first place, w/ your confirmation I checked the cover and it needed some adjustment to get it to clear the grate at the back. Now it is working as it should. Thanks again.

We've found the stove cover in our last three trailers to be in the way and obstructing the two back burners. Once camp is set up, the stove top is removed so the tea pot, fry pan, etc can sit unobstructed on the stove top. We use an oak stove cover bought through camping world a few years ago. When parked, it sets upright against the wall.
