Chubbs, when you take it apart there is the end plastic cap - but I also have a rubber washer about 3p thick. Is this standard or just the Nismo has it. I have rotated it and my boot opens past the catch each time without any coins. If its standard I am confused as try as I may I cannot fit any coins in and I did try for about an hour with 2p and 1p. Before I reassembled it as it was just rotated and it worked?

Hmmmm. There may be a problem with you saying that it works. As you know, it only fails to open properly after the boot's not been opened for several hours - or days - especially in cold weather. If you tested it within, say, 2 hours of first opening it, it WILL work fine. But your problem may return after a few days, when the spring becomes compressed/cold again.

 

The 'rubber washer' is in all of them, if I remember correctly. Isn't it in the pic I linked you to?

 

Weird that you can't fit 1p coins in. Methinks it's something to look at during a meet, after all. I'm seeing if I can come to Leeds Castle on the Saturday. If I do I'll happily look at it with you then?

Cheers mate I am going to leave it for the time being.  My hand is bruised to @@''' and I have had enough - assembled it and put it back together.
