    Maybe it's because of how you have it mounted to your plow? I've NEVER seen that happen.

    I placed (2) 3'x1" sections of stock towards the bottom of the deflector. I then used some thick vinyl coated chain and attached it to the corner of the plow and the corner of the delector through the stock. Be sure to leave enough slack so that the snow does not lifft the plow.

    Nate: how does that picture work on a Fisher where the only flat strip on the moldboard is parallel to the ground??? :confused:

    Also could you please post the address for your website. The one listed in your profile doesn't work.

    I have the one that is a formed plastic (Western). It doesn't move at all, and absolutely no snow ever sticks to it.

    I used to put 3 bungie straps on my old Hiniker to keep the deflector down. Hooked it on the top lip of the moldboard, then over the deflector then to the cutting edge, just don't forget to take it off before plowing.
