    They will hold to a certain point, and then release to keep things from breaking. Mine do it as well. How easily are they folding back? Mine take a good amount of pressure. And actually, the Smartlocks are to keep the wings from folding forward into the scoop position when backdragging, not to keep the wings from folding back.

    The purpose of smart locks is to prevent the wings from folding forward when backdragging.

    Your wings are collapsing while stacking because of the pressure being applied to them by the piles you're making. A little bit is considered normal but if they collapse under very little pressure then it's a problem with the pressure relief valve.

    ya you can turn the valve up to stop the wings from folding back. My dealer told me that but you are more prone to break stuff with the valve turned up.
