The latches and hinges on medium end coolers stink. At least stainless replacement parts are coming down in price and more widely available. I do however like repairing with scrap rather than buying new parts that are probably junk anyway.

The problem are the hindges and lock break in the first few months when they are in a lot of sun. Igloo sells stainless hindges but they are like 30 bucks a set, so we use thick solid rubber, the same stuff we make gaskets out of. They last forever.
As for the lock, a thick piece of heavy duty velcro from home depot works perfectly when you screw it to the front.
