Little zippy rear mug guard extension

Anyone have that extension do an adios on you?
I can't imagine it FELL off, although the little interaction I've had with it, it seemed to creep lower. I did give it a sharp downward pull at one point but seemed to not want to leave the premises. Now today I noticed it's gone.
I can't remember for sure the last time I really noticed it was there.
Last Wednesday I did a "bike night" event. This past Sunday it was in a parking ramp for the first time with it. Only couple things that come to mind as far as it being outright taken.

I looked on realoem and saw there is a bolt and nut that keeps the flap from coming down too far. I found the nut behind the license plate, but the bolt is gone. So it probably did an early departure all on it's own. I'd assume you adjsut the flap where you want it and tighten the bolt and I won't have the "self-dropping flap" syndrome.

Yep, you've just had a screw come loose (bet you've never heard that before ). The flap shouldn't have come all the way out, but I can see how that might have happened while riding.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

With the screw gone I think it would come out. Next time I'll raise the flap up and tighten the screw.
