    Quote:How do u have it hooked up?

    I connected it up to a 12 volt battery when I took it out of the package today

    It will only open up 1/3 of the way

    Could this be because the battery isn't fully charged?

    What battery do u have for it?

    Thank u

    You need to hold the magnet over the red circle longer so that it opens all the way or as far as you want it to open. The instructions aren't very clear.
