I want to replace the latches on the metal first aid box that ****** offers with something more durable. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Todd

ToddP ,

check out the local hardware stores and builders supply places to look over the cabinet or toolbox latches

you should find some that can easily be used but you may have to weld them on

i came across a couple of the first aid boxes that the latches had been torn off and i welded on a good quality toolbox latch which worked better than the original latches did

with the rubber seal and keeping a good tight lid seal you can even get some latches that pull downwards a lot more than the original ones and this is a plus

i also weld on a small hasp to use as a locking feature to keep the lid closed as well

Later,
