Fixing a JR Products Concealed Positive Catch Latch
Boiiiiiiiinnnnnnngggggg! Did you find the spring? Here is a view of my broken JR Products latch. They are cheap enough to replace but why wait for another failure? Let's fix it right.
The housing is drilled with a 1/16 drill. The latch is chewed out with a grinding bit.
You then use a piece of stainless steel safety wire ... or whatever you have though stainless won't rust ... and catch the latch with the new wire.
WORKS GREAT! Next time I mix epoxy I'm going to put a dab on the ends of the wires.
