Here was my fix:
I stuffed a towel under and around the hinge, sprayed a bunch of simple green/ hot water into the hinge housing and took my air hose and blew it dry, did that about 4-5 different times, then I just sprayed some wd40 on it and called it good. It has been going back down without locking up perfectly for about 6 days now.
Im taking a shot in the dark, but I think it just gets alot of dust/dirt built up inside there which causes the locking arm to not fall backwards freely. So just clean the damn thing and hopefully it works for you as it did for me.
best thing about this, is the fact it only took a few minutes and cost me nothin!
