Latch repair question

So I went to close the latch when I noticed it was open and it just fell apart. Does anyone know how to put it back together? Thanks !

All the king’s horses, and all the king’s men couldn’t put the southco lock back together again…

Honestly, I’m not sure if that’s true or not, but if it just fell apart I’m not sure I would trust a put-together-again lock.

I’d either replace it with a new one or use this as an excuse to upgrade the panels to the C5 locks.

Maybe someone will have the knowledge to rebuild it or have better advice, but that’s my opinion.

that little pot metal rivet popped and it will never stay together again unless you drill it out use a real steel rivet. this happened to mine also and GFC had a new latch in my hands in 3 days just fill out the service request
