Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. The hinges have little protruding metal flanges in most cases. If those metal tips or flanges are not properly hooked in, the springs in the hinges will not hold up the cover, and it will be free to fall as you describe. Re-assembly, with some care to that detail, will be necessary.
