Loud clank sound when soft top compartment lid closes

Sometimes when I put the top down and the final lid closes, it sounds like it make a much louder clank sound than usual. Is it just locking into place and there’s nothing wrong with it? I’m curious because usually it is a soft and easy click. It’s been doing this for as long as I’ve had the car.

Went to the mechanic. He said it’s nothing serious. It’s most likely the hinges where the hooks are that aren’t lubricated enough. I may have to spray some silicon lubricant.
You are lucky as I once heard a loud clanking noise and it turned out to be a broken hinge that had to be replaced.
