    Default Canopy Latches

    Hello All,

    I am looking for some canopy latches. Currently, i have to pinch a metal tab to get the lid to close on both side of the capsule. Anyone use a different system?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Can you post some pics of what you have?

    Quite a few of us use the o-ring with the pull pins, one for each side. I'll get you some pics tomorrow.

    We use 2 layers of plexiglass about 2 inch wide and 7 or 8 inches long screwed to small wooden block on inside of canopy. You hook your finger under plexi glass to shut canopy. and to open, you just push and if flicks the plexiglass strip, past the top lip, of cell !!

    Simple idea but it works for us !
