I think the coding holds the lock open to allow the boot to lift.

Thanks for the confirmation fella  :happy2:
I have already ordered the one's in my link, but at least they are the same thing, I'll try to find a washer the right size.   Bits should all arrive by Friday or Saturday so I can't wait Lol..

The retro boot kit works a lot better in the summer months and hardly ever in the colder ones.......but I may need to get some fresh boot dampers saying that.
