Idea to fix pesky drawer clasps
Planned obsolescence is two dirty words as far as I'm concerned and if you own an RV that have those cheap plastic clasps that hold the drawers and closets closed then maybe this will save you some money & hassles.
The male side of the clasp are made from hard plastic but always seem to break at the most inopportune times and you can't just buy that part, you need to buy the entire clasp assembly. (One might ask why that part couldn't have been molded with a tiny strip of metal inside to give it strength?)
Makes too much sense I guess...
Anyway my "fix" is to install another tiny screw almost in the middle of the male clasp which gives it much more strength and support.
I used 1" X 5/64" screws on all my male clasps and doubt I'll need to ever purchase another clasp assembly.
I have some photos to share but don't see the "paper-clip" icon to attach them (maybe someone can enlighten me and I will update this post with a couple of pics)
