The plastic latch could be made better because when they break the chest is no good until repairs are made. Also after reading the reviews a lot of other people feel the same way. It's the cheap little pieces that snap on the spring bar. For what you charge for the cooler spend a few more $ and get a better handle.I run an rv park and talk to thousands of people every year is how I heard of your product , It's like having a new car with a bad starter if it won't start it's worthless.Thanks for the replacement part and since you are out of stock for the part a lot proves my point. Thanks
The latches and their two part design are plastic and the design flaw is that the attachment part is weak. This is the "lift up" part that clips onto the spring loaded base that is screwed to the lid. The series of four "hooked" plastic attachment points are the weak link of the total latch/closing mechanism and designed to fail.
Broke the latch by accident, ordered a new one online. Replacement latch was simple and easy to replace. snapped right in.
So it seems to me that if ICECO sells the latches as repacements and "spares" they must know that the engineering is faulty to have so many failures and breakages. I hope the redesign them for future owners.
No instructions ... how do I replace my Latch ?
