Anyway, you just have to make sure your kick is not inside the range of the center two sensors. That's what's done it for me. Prior to figuring that out, I failed miserable several times. lol
Absolutely. Distance is critical and also snap the leg back fairly briskly. I even graze the bumper a tad with the top of my foot. That must tickle the car some and makes it pop the trunk easier.
