Convertible divider

We bought a 2018 Nightfall Gray V6 Convertible in December 2018. Traded a 2012 RS Red Convertible (regretting this decision now). While I like some of the features of the 2018 I am disappointed with others. The major disappointment is this stupid trunk divider / convertible top sensor crap. The car is my my wife's daily driver so it mostly annoys her and I get to hear about it daily. The 2012 had the piece you pull across the trunk and set into the holder on each side. Worked great and never failed to do its job, didn't come loose because you put a purse or other small object in the trunk and accidentally touched the divider.

Has anyone found a way to defeat this divider without modifying the car? I just want the sensor to detect the connection and allow the top to go down when we press the button. This is our 2nd Camaro convertible and 4 convertible overall so we understand not to put things in the trunk that will damage the top when it is down.

Thanks for any help/advice you can provide.

buy a new divider and cut the upper grommets off of it and put them on the knobs, done deal.

Not that this helps fix your divider, but I have a '17 and have never had an issue with the divider not staying in place. My point is: not every car has this problem. I assume you're still covered under warranty, so maybe you can get the dealer to order you a replacement divider that actually stays in place.

There was a recall on some of the cars for defective dividers call your dealer or send me the last 8 of your vin and I will check on yours if you would like me to.
