Since I bought the car it has never folded down on us. Agree that the 5-degree tilt helps it PLUS the faster u go the more the wind keeps it in place.

Agree with your assessment. This thing is well worth it even at full price!
Bolded part of your comment above was something that I didn't think about until we drove with ours in place...it takes very little effort to fold the vertical piece down when stopped, but when it's up and at speed the wind effects are actually keeping it from folding down. I have seen a couple posts about it sometimes folding down due to high turbulence (e.g., going by a large truck) on the freeway...
