    When I parked in a garage this weekend and popped open the hatch, it self-raised and banged into the unexpectedly low ceiling. No damage, but now I'm looking for something like a clear molding/strip to fit on that strip edge in case I'm in a similar situation and forget to look up :)

    Any suggestions? I'm thinking something like a door edge protector, but would need to be wider and either clip over the edge or be pliable to bend over it.

    Thanks - that one is cheap enough to give a try, and has clear!

    Can you tie a string to anything on the inside of the hatch and use it to limit the rise while open?

    Hmm - I don't recall any anchor points for that, but will take a look.

    I use a strap with 2 plastic hooks, One end hooked to the latch U bolt the other to the license plate bracket. I have to hook them on while holding the hatch.
