Slapped from my E-brake/Parking Brake

I have seen the threads about adjusting the parking brake nut but cant find anything about my brake problem. So after I park I pull the E-brake up, let go and it holds but only sometimes. Sometimes its a few seconds or a minute and then it pops down and slaps me in the thigh. The other day I set it got out locked the car waked away and heard it pop really loud.
Seems like the ratchet is not sticking maybe. Any thoughts?
Car is a 2010 GT 5sp manual.
Still has tension cable feels tight. It has been a beast to pull up an get it to lock and when it does stick there is a 50/50 chance your going to get slapped! Tried adjusting the nut tighter and then loose, no luck both ways.
Thanks!

Mine does the same thing. 2010 gt as well. I asked them at the ford dealer while I was getting other work done and they have me an incomprehensible answer.
