Caprigear, I suspect Martin could have one or two? Is it the one from the key to the handle or the longer one to the lock? The short one I`d think you could get away with a piecce of shaped coat-hanger or similar, it`s not under much load?

I was also planning to use a section of coat hanger - or two stuck together for extra strength!

I never thought of that, that`s a good idea!

I just figured that I have a habit of breaking my hangers just by pulling my clothes off them so a few stuck together in the same shape have a better chance of surviving :lol:
