Probably not designed for wind buffet coming over the cab at 80MPH. Smile

Maybe Subaru parts could fix it?

Yes, single cabs have folding props on Wolfgang rears, so they don't project into the passenger area

I've had my singlecab rear safari for over 10 years..never had a falling down problem. I do like to drive with mine open only fully supported by one support, I leave the other support not fully braced in the "unlocked knee" position.. That way when I'm rolling and wanna close the window I just need to "unlock the knee" of the one with one hand quickly and the window closes. Easy Peazy.

Are your supports installed in a manner so the "knees lock" when the window is fully open....the little bars should just go a bit over center and sort of lock like your own knees do when moved backwards?

Anyways, the pivot rivet was getting loose from use at one time....so I squeezed it gently with my favorite vise grips. Worked great.

Ogpaint, yeah, they seem to kind of lock, honestly the loose rivet might be the problem because it only seems to happen when I hit a bump. I will give that a try tonight and i'll let you know, thanks.

Get fronts safari and leave them open to blow through to keep the rear window open? Forced window opening

Ok, so I tried to tighten the rivet, but it didnt work, but ya know what did?!?! I drilled a hole in that bitch and put a pin in it! PROBLEM SOLVED! Lol.
I used a spring release style with the locking detent. Looks less okie with an anodized aluminum pin. Anodized aluminum is for race cars!
