    Hi
    It seems to be a common fault on the Autograph 75-2 the the airplane style lockers open when driving so we brought some more cabinet latches and after some fiddling about with positions for the catches, hey presto, no more problems even on really bad roads.
    The down side is the they were about £8 from the Bailey website. Although I think EBay do them as well.

    We packed the edges with foam pads.
    It's the outer edges of the locker that flex when hitting a pothole that uncatches them

    Just picked up our 75-2 and the first bit of bad (TBH, very bad) road surface hit, all three large lockers popped open! Did know about this issue and mentioned it to dealer on collection, they said they hadn't heard of it before. No issue with a work seeing, not keen on fitting extra catches, so did the foam packing solve the issue? I guessed it was a door flexing issue, was thinking a strip of cork along the edges of the door would prevent that?

    Any advice appreciated

    I've heard of people using these.

    No experience myself but may be worth a look. The plus point being you don't have to make any holes in anything.

    Packing the outer edges worked for us
