My freedom panels backside latches always loosen.

At first I thought is was my kids and I have been yelling at my kids for months to stop touching them. BUT its not them.

Anyone else have this issue (not the kids) and how did you fix it? ( seems to happen with pot hole events)

I find the latches on the 2019 are definitely looser than the ones on my 2015. But they haven't opened on their own... yet.

Mine are just the opposite, super tight. I imagine they can pretty easily be tightened down or loosened at the handle
