Hmmm, I'm not even sure how that's possible. Do you mean the dog legs folded up
In any case, I've driven thousands of miles with the rearmost bow not connected
to the strap (including through the Mohave desert in summer time) and never had
a problem with the bows collapsing. There might have been once or twice I had
to push the rear bow back into position, but I don't recall even that.
