The latches on my storage compartments were shot. They are the type that uses a key like you would use to open a drink machine; round key with hole in the middle that had splines that slip over and into the center of the latches. The center pin of the latches had worn down so that the splines did not catch. I had been using needle nosed pliers to push in and turn the latches. All of the latches on my rig were in the same condition. I shopped around but nothing I found looked like they would work and finding exact replacements was practically impossible. Would have been costly to replace all the latches too.
While rummaging in my shop, I found my pneumatic cut off tool. AHA!! I carried my compressor out to the MH and I cut a groove in the center of every latch. Now I can use a flat screwdriver to easily turn and open the the latches. 5 minutes work, no cost, problem solved!
