my advice to you would be to install it when it's warm out, it makes the plastic more flexible. Also, don't get impatient with the area near the latches. The holes WILL align, and it just means you have to really push and make sure the whole protector is on straight and even. I think this is RR's failsafe to make sure people aren't putting the darn thing on crooked. Also, if you have any tips for making the angled edges really stick, post them up. I tried pressing hard on it, nothing. I also tried putting some heavy stuff (protected, of course) on top for the night,but when I lifted it off, the thing popped right up. Oh well, like I said, it is not a big deal, and barely noticeable.
