Session Variable - Ecart - Not working

I am having trouble setting up a session variable to apply a charge of a value is greater then 6 in a selected drop down.

I have set up a drop down list on my order page: order-indoor.php

<select name="CanuckHTC_15_SkirtLength_Add" size="1" id="SkirtLength">
<option value="No Skirt">No Skirt</option>
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="1.25">1.25</option>
<option value="1.5">1.5</option>
<option value="1.75">1.75</option>
<option value="2.0">2.0</option>
<option value="2.25">2.25</option>
<option value="3.0">3.0</option>
<option value="3.25">3.25</option>
<option value="3.5">3.5</option>
<option value="3.75">3.75</option>
<option value="4.0">4.0</option>
<option value="4.25">4.25</option>
<option value="4.5">4.5</option>
<option value="4.75">4.75</option>
<option value="5.0">5.0</option>
<option value="5.25">5.25</option>
<option value="5.5">5.5</option>
<option value="5.75">5.75</option>
<option value="6.0">6.0</option>
<option value="6.25">6.25</option>
<option value="6.5">6.5</option>
<option value="6.75">6.75</option>
<option value="7.0">7.0</option>
<option value="7.25">7.25</option>
<option value="7.5">7.5</option>
<option value="7.75">7.75</option>
<option value="8.0">8.0</option>
<option value="8.25">8.25</option>
<option value="8.5">8.5</option>
<option value="8.75">8.75</option>
<option value="9.0">9.0</option>
<option value="9.25">9.25</option>
<option value="9.5">9.5</option>
<option value="9.75">9.75</option>
<option value="10.0">10.0</option>

Set hidden form element on the cart page cart.php

<input name="SkirtLength" type="hidden" id="SkirtLength" value="<?php echo((isset($_POST["SkirtLength"]))?$_POST["SkirtLength"]:"") ?>" />

Then set session value on cart page cart.php

Then edited ECart Charges page - based on session variable value (is greater than 6.0) to add $12 as a flat rate charge

It doesn't pick up the charges to show in the order summary.
Hope you can help

the skirt length is already being added to the "SkirtLength" column in the ecart object, there is no need to capture it in another session variable.

On the calculation tab of the eCart object, create a new calculation:
name: SkirtCalc:
(([SkirtLength] > 6)?12:0) * [Quantity]

then on the charges tab, create a new charge:
Subtotal For Any Column:
If the subtotal of column 'SkirtCalc' is '>' a value of '0'

based on Column subtotal:
subtotal of column 'SkirtCalc' 'plus' '0'
