installed TRD Pro Grill, now hood keeps opening

Installed a TRD Pro grill from Toyota Proshop - not too bad of an install. I want to say getting the letters straight was probably the most time consuming part of it.

However, I notice now that after my morning commute (5 miles), the hood comes unlatched. Has happened the past couple days, every day.

Any thoughts? Hood looks / sounds like its closing normally. Where to start?

2016 SR5 4x4, 80k miles.

Thx!

Have you tried adjusting the Hood Stop Buffers down 1/2 turn at a time?

Check the release cable routing to make sure you didn't pinch it or move it making it a "hair trigger" release

To be honest, I came here really hoping for a Tommy Boy type story....
