Masterbuilt door latch problem

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Howdy Smokers,

I got a question. Anyone here upgrade the door latches on the Masterbuilt smoker?

The one it comes with is almost useless. I am using a bungee cord to help keep the door shut for now.

Any suggestions on what would work best for a fix?

Other than the latch I love it.

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure Todd Johnson did it. I'll see if I can find it.

Thanks Bear. Really not addressing my problem though. I need to beef up the latch on mine. I was hoping someone else had done this already and could help me find a suitable latch to put on it. The door is really thin and I am concerned about durability.

I was searching for about an hour, and I can't find anyone who has replaced the latch.

Is it broken? If it's broken, you should be able to get a new one from Masterbuilt. If it's not broken, you should be able to adjust it with the adjustment nuts.

Bakerman,

I don't give up easily.:biggrin:

Check this short thread out.

Tells you where to get adjustable draw latches.
