  • Locked hatch

    Hey guys so I guess I locked my hatch some how and the key I was give with my baby doesn't open it. I need help someone tell me how to get it unlocked! Lol

    Does the lever work? Sometimes my lever will feel like it broke off on the inside. I gotta climb in and on the passengers side up near the latch i gotta push a little bracket backwards(to the plate). Its the child lock i guess! ANyway i push that lever and she will open right up.

    if the hatch is actually locked then i dont know what to do.

      there is a little lever that actuates the lock, usually the key is attached to a little metal arm that has a piece of plastic that can sometimes break. the actual lock will be a little lever under the doorcard, you should be able to get to it. It's happened to me before too, only problem is we had to use a broomstick because we cant fit through our cage :/. i know your pain on it lol

        With a screwdriver, you should be able to move the finger at the latch mechanism from the inside. It needs to be pushed down.
