    I don't have access to mine right now, but they are very straight forward. The mechanism is rather large and primitive. There is a button at the rear, which needs to be pressed if you're going to either open or close the thing. So you need to check if it pops into the locked position once the stock is open. Other than that, look for damaged parts.

    Make sure it's clean - like there's nothing in the mechanism that could prevent it from caming completely - if it is , then a little milling in the right spot should allow it to lock - it should be obvious where - and these are assembled with pins IIRC.

    What kind of sidefolding stock is it, poly, or metal? If metal, oil the button shaft
    and where pieces rub against each other' If it's poly it might be broke.
