Thanks for the info Don. Check the Pin and linkage in your quick connect for wear or damage. Try maneuvering it without the attachment to check for problems. Click this link for more info. Let me know

Check the pin slots for wear or any damage from rocks etc that will cause the attachment to not stay locked
