Broken Latch on Lid Revised

Broken Latch on Lid Revised

I now have a better solution, so don't follow the tip I suggested in my letter published in issue Number 5, p. 50). (The lids on both my 95 and 100 wouldn't stay closed because of a broken latch or spring. I suggested slipping a thick rubber band into the space where the latch comes down.)

Although my solution seemed to work for awhile, the rubber band was apparently too thick and too far back under the latch, and eventually it put too much upward pressure on the hinge when I depressed the latch. The latch broke.

My latest solution is better. I simply cut a piece of very soft foam rubber (the length of the latch) which I took from the padded shoulders of my wife's sweater (I put two pieces under each latch). I had to take the foam rubber out and trim it to size, then reinstall it with a drop of super glue. Now both 95 and 100 latch fine.
