    Today it decided to close up when I was standing at the back, three times. I had loaded a lot of set top boxes and sat equipment with cables one toward the catch lock. It just kept closing by itself without the foot underneath. Beep, beep, beep.

    Moral behind this don't turn off the warning with Obdeleven etc if you don't want to be hit on your head. Having been down the tip it was fine. Think it was all the metal playing havoc with the sensor underneath or the stray cable coming forward towards the catch.

    Nope. I put it down to a stack of sat boxes and av boxes plus a stray cable coming toward the catch. It did it outside the house and was doing it at the tip as well. Once the boxes were out it was fine. Only for the beep, beep, beep did it not come down on my head. I know some people like to turn the warning signal off via Obdeleven but ill advised. I'd have to look to see what the sensor is underneath but it was certainly affected by what was in the boot. First time in 20 months of successful operation.

    Edit.

    More house moving and a bit more speedy closing down when not expected. Seems to be adversely effected by carrying metal in the boot.... that warning beep, beep sound is there for a reason even thou it may disturb the neighbours in the pitch of night. It catches you out when stretching deep inside the boot with your feet placed straight down not wiggled in as per the normal operation as the sensitivity of the sensor gets too high.
