Not closing easy thats for sure, once its latched it stays put. My beef is how it drags the inner tunnel

Pullin' up on the bar didnt work, it's firm. Upper plastic insert installed right, did notice its dragging the turnkey top mount a little.

My latch has never come open or anything like that but most times after I push it closed I still have to manually close the latch handle to 'lock it'. If yours won't even allow that I'm thinking the internals are hanging up and lots of cheap latches sometimes require just a bit of lube from time to time. Can you try and squirt a little silicone or WD40 in there and work the latch a few times and then see if it helps any.

That's what mine does. Mine will latch partially and I have to push the handle down to latch it fully.

Never noticed a problem with mine closing or staying latched. I have noticed it rubs or catches on the center console plastic
