Replacing guitar case latches?


Any idea where to source a replacement guitar case latch?


They're all over eBay.


Ive replaced one. I found it on Ebay, as stated earlier .

I had to drill out the original rivets and install it with some blind rivets (pop rivets).You can also use some round head phillips screws and a lock nut. Just get the screws just long enough so theres very little thread protrusion into your case.

Make sure you verify your sizing on the replacement handle. My first one I bought was a small flimsy P.O.S. that was made for a tiny suitcase.


I've got a pair of skb butterfly latches avail. Fender style
