I should add, that the operators manual section says, "opening/closing in an emergency', however it only addresses the procedure for raising the top, thus to put the top down, it is necessary to interperalate the steps necessary, about the storage compartment hinges, the levels work very easy to move from both positions as stated in number 6, the levels are soft plastic and if forced apart they will break, not wanting to break them, we decieded to skip the pull-apart step, I rotated the levels forward to the detent positon, put the straps on, closed the truck lid, then as stated with a strong simultaneous tug on the loops we pulled, the soft top compartment cover popped up 3/8 of an inch, not knowing what to do next we quite and drink beer.
