Default Center Armrest Won't stay closed

Just bought my first Mini, an 08 "S" manual tranny with 55k miles. There is one thing that is annoying, the center armrest/console lid won't stay shut. It slides back if the wind blows. I saw a "fix" on Hypoxic using rare earth magnets.

Is there another fix less "hokie" ? Thanks for the help!
