Recently discovered that tightening the torx bolts at the back on the 
bottom... the ones on each side of the hinge, about 1/4 of the way in 
from the edges... helps the stiffness of the hinge and "latching 
quality" considerably.

Watch, though, because it's really easy to overtighten the bolts and 
strip the threads. Only one side on mine, thankfully.
