Hello all.
Don't know if any of you have had this problem before but I've had this problem on a couple of my L-boxxes now: the sticking latch/catch. Really is a pain in the arse when trying to stack your boxes. Happily, it's a simple fix amounting to popping off the black cover, then the red catch, then doing a bit of sanding. Works a charm.
I did a quick instructional video in case it's useful info to others.
All the best.

NICE! I have this on my large plunge saw L-BOXX, which often sits on the bottom of a trolly, so I'm always afraid the tower will tip if I lift it gently to roll across power cords and stuff like that. This is happening tomorrow! .:)

I've also had loose latches on the front, which was fixed by gently using a heat gun to reshape them by less then a mm.

Hello diygeezer.
Only just noticed your reply. I like the idea of using a bit of heat to reshape the front latches slightly if they're loose. I have a few like that. I'll give it a go and maybe do another video if I can find the time - giving credit for the idea where it's due of course ;)
