Adjusting it to close properly and evenly is trial and error that involves loosening/tightening the bolts a few dozen times. I hope you're a patient man.

You probably have to adjust the stop for the top swing out support arm. Part number 4 in the pic below.

It is mounted on a slotted hole, move it rearwards and the arm stops earlier causing it to swing in towards the van that bit earlier.
Hope that makes sense.

How did yours come out? I did mine following this advice but I would like to get the forward section about an 1/8th tighter it rattles over hard bumps.
