ELMER’S CORNER: Found in Vol. 32/no.188 of Woodsmith “Latch Repair”

If you have tools that are stored in molded, plastic containers, this might be just what you are looking for in a tip.  Although the tools fit nicely, the latches don’t always hold up. After several years of use of opening and closing the latches often break, making keeping them closed securely a trial. I know I have several cases in my wood shop like this.

An easy replacement for these latches can be found in your baby aisle in most discount stores. Look for an oven safety latch. They adjust to fit any tool box.
