XWave battery door
 
I am having the same problem with my new XWave as I had with my ShockWave only worse. The battery door wants to come off outside of using duct tape has anyone got a solution. I don't think a new door will help.

I'm thinking that duct tape would be the simplest, cheapest, most effective cure.

If that is a typical problem, Foxpro will take care of it. Contact them to get service.

If I was trying to establish a reliable fix, I'd consider heavy duty stick on Velcro.

That is not a bad idea.. I did tell FoxPro about it and they are sending me another door. I don't know if that will solve the problem. I looked at it a little closer today and the fix would be if the latch would go up higher. When I get the new door I may fool around with the old door to see if I can get it up higher with out breaking it. I got a few ideas to try.

Got the new door today tried to put it on but it wouldn't fit. It had a rubber cushion the original didn't have but it gave me a idea to use the original and just chim it witch worked it puts just enough to hold the door tight. I may try something a little better latter.

I finally got around in trying a fix to the door problem that I think will solve the problem. The latch just don't come up high enough to latch good on the original door or the replacement. What I did was to pry the latch up just a little, not to much then heated it with a heat gun just enough to soften the plastic at the latch. Now you have to be carefully not to heat it too much a hairdryer mite work better. Let it cool and the latch stays up just fine. The door is tight, it is one of those things you have to be careful and not over do it.
