    Default problem opening Signum boot

    Hi Guys

    I have a problem opening the boot on a Signum Ive just bought (my 2nd!)

    It will only 'pop' open half way off the catch, and sometimes I cant hear the opening mechanism work at all. (Good job it will open on the inside)

    Before I open it all up, I wonder if anyone has some pearls of insight to help minimise the job.

    Thanks

    Common fault mate. If it gets caught on the latch without opening, press the boot down as if closing as you press the open button and then pull up

    There are some wierd and wonderful fixes on here but it just seems to be a design fault meaning the mechanism doesn't unlock if it isn't opened/closed properly
