Default p182 door swing

the P182 is advertised as having a double hinged door that swings 270 degrees. However on my p182 the door only goes about ~190 degrees...there doesnt seem to be anything in the way or blocking it. Has anyone else encountered this issue?

There are two hinges on the door. After that, the door clips out from where the first hinge rotates. Not sure what the best way to describe it is, but check out some of these photos.

Yeah, love my P182. But my door, although it does open all the way, won't stay against the side panel - it keeps slowly closing again. My wife's is fine, but mine likes to slowly close. Annoying.

Switch your case for your wife's when she's not looking.

Change the direction it's slanting in.
I've got a P180, and the door unfortunately broke two days after I got the case and I never got around to RMAing it.
