    Well it finally happened, boot wouldn’t open and I was stuck working from the inside.

    1. Watched the online help videos
    2. “Created” a tool to help.
    3. Got it opened
    4. Replaced actuator
    5. Built a DIY pull release so I never have to do it again. (Although it probably won’t ever happen again...now)

    This would be no fun to do if not at home so may even be a preventative measure.

    Someone can definitely make a slicker pull cord, but this works for now with some parts I had around the house.

    I wanted a very light wire for the pull so it would not affect the actuator.
    I also wanted it to not affect the fold down sitting portion of the boot.

    Only one little hole in the plastic.

    Would love to see someone do this better. I think this would be good for people using the inside for camping and don’t have keys in the sleeping bag.
