one side is notched the other side is not. the side that is not is like a peg, you need to slide it off the peg.

Haha Mine just falls off almost every time I open it. I think there maybe too much grease on it.

I believe that you have to have the tailgate angled up and something like 30 degrees up from down to get it to line up with the peg on that side.
