k75 luggage latches - where to find?
« on: March 19, 2024, 02:14:05 PM »
Hi folks,

As a newbie to everything K75 I'm probably just not looking in the right place, but I have looked at all of the parts sites I've found and I'm getting nowhere. The latches on my tragkorbs are not the locking type but I would consider converting. They're all pretty beat (as is the luggage), broken or missing and could benefit from replacement.

My latches look like this:







Anyone got a source for OEM or aftermarket replacements? TIA.

those are the old old style, they do lock if you have a key.  They also break pretty easily, I found a parts source at Home Depot :laughing4-giggles: :laughing4-giggles:

Once I had a Collie pup. Dug a hole and covered him up. Now I sit there by the hour. Waiting for a Collie-flower.
