Sorry for any confusion. What I meant is there are a couple tips and tricks in the video regarding installation. The main tip I want to emphasize is making sure the fender bracket is completely flush with mounting point on the fender after it has been tightened down. We have found that when tightening down the bracket it can sometimes start to angle down and not stay flush with the fender mounting point.

It is a good idea to look under the newly installed bracket to make sure it is still flush and has completely cleared the OEM bolt that it is installed over.

If the bracket is not in the proper position it will affect the hood and can cause the double latch to stick.
Thanks for providing the clarification. I haven't had any issues with my struts, but I haven't had a reason to open my hood for a few months. It's nice to know that help is available should I need it.
