For what it's worth, when you turn the lifts the other way, they work fine since they push the bed TOWARDS the front wall. I wonder if I used heavier lifts than I needed to, and had to play around with the mounting locations, but it's all good now. At least it stays open quite positively till you close it!
I'm considering that pass-through partition mod, but after I finish the new battery/storage box mod I'm currently working on.
