The U-latch is held by two Phillips screws:  take a shorty screwdriver and
loosen them.  Fiddle with adjustments until it locks securely - you will
probably have to move it forward, but don't make it too loose or it will
pop open on bumps,etc.
I find its most secure when it takes an extra strong push right next to the
locking mechanism to snap it shut.
