Seems silly just for the boot to click open, it means pretty delicate fingers will still get soiled fully opening it.
I suspect the lid is too heavy & the springs too weak for it to fully open, which means a good old heave to open manually, all a bit agricultural.
It's probably the struts for the lid that make it feel heavy.
