Brian when the tops down crack the bottom lines loose at the cylinders and when you push the top down re tighten the hyd. lines (you may need a helper)! That should relieve the pressure holding the top up a little at the bottom of the cylinders! If it doesn't help see if there is another hole to mount the cylinders in to lower them? If there isn't I don't know? If your top and cage are new your cage may be binding a little and will free up with use. Your cover will also shrink LoL and stretch when installed in the sun!!! If can warm the cover and snap it down and keep it warm for a while it should loosen up.
