Do you have a write up of the research you did into F150 owners being annoyed by the door positions?

I can say it REALLY annoys me, has ever since I got the truck. I'll modify my own before I pay that much however.

Everyone hates the stock ones. I'm afraid to open my door every time I park in my garage or driveway.

Agree it's annoying. Stupid design.

Don't think i want to disassemble my door to fix it however. Afraid something won't line up right and I'll be dealing with air leaks and noise forever.

@schizbomb. Thanks for asking.

Annoyance level was one of two questions on the “annoyance” topic as follows:

Q9 How annoyed are you with the current front door detent positions on your F-150?
• Very annoyed. I’m reminded almost daily of this issue.
• Somewhat annoyed. Sometimes I’m reminded of this issue.
• Not annoyed exactly. But I’m aware of the issue.

Q10 In what situations do you find the current door detent positions annoying?
Check all that apply.
• Parking lots.
• Home garage, carport, or driveway.
• Getting in and out regardless of where I am or what I'm next to.
• When I’m already in truck and I'm reaching to close door.
• When I have passenger and they’re not familiar with doors / door detents.
• Add any other situations. Please be specific.


We had a 15-question survey posted to surveymonkey.com in February 2013. While respondents were anonymous they were likely from this forum and viewers of the original thread on DD3.0. The context was we had a northlight labs beta website so the survey requirement was to simply go to the site and, of course, own a 2009-2013 F-150. Essentially, we wanted to learn if the website drove product understanding and purchase intent as well as get a sense of the mindset and habits of who might purchase.

The question topics were:

Overall Truck Satisfaction
Informative Level of Website
Installation Comfort Level
Purchase Intent
Stock Detent Annoyance Level
Annoyance Situations
Truck Usage
Monies Spent on Utility/Convenience/Comfort Mods
Monies Spent on Overall Mods
Time Spent on Website


If interested, on the home page of the website, I’ve given a few other results/stats from the research. And, I'd be happy to share more!

I just wanted to know if the research was scientific or informal. Judging by Q9 and Q10 it is informal. I had actually never even thought of the detent "issue" until I read one of the threads here so I was curious.

Default pprior: No Door Disassembly Required

The door check assembly is not a weight-bearing component (like the door hinges). It does not influence door alignment or sealing.

Installation of northlight labs Door Detent 3.0 requires only the removal of the stock door check assembly (one bolt and two nuts).

Most people are able to install both driver and passenger sides in about an hour.

Check out www.northlightlabs.com to get a complete look at design , manufacturing and installation of DD3.0.

Thanks for your interest.

Peter

I installed mine today. The hinges align the door, not the detent. 5 minutes on the driver side, 20 on the passenger side.

The product worked great!
