This is one of the most popular sized hasps in a bronze finish. It is an appropriate replacement hasp for many briefcase combination/ key locks however, do check dimensions and detail closely, as slight differences in design may mean certain spares won't work with your briefcase. This hasp however has a more accommodating catch which tends to make it suitable for more locks. The hole in the hasp into which the latch engages is 9mm x 4mm.
Dimensions 46mm (closed length) 33mm wide. Hole centres 23mm.
This lock is very similar to the sbh1 but the depth of the plate with the holes in is 5mm as apposed to 4mm on the sbh1.
Suits either left or right hand locks.
This range of replacement parts is useful for practically minded people, who have a broken briefcase they do not want to part with and who do not have a saddler or luggage repairer in their neighbourhood.
Peel back the organiser section in the lid by about 5 inches. Don't worry about the stitching
as it is dummy stitched.
Peel back the leather that covers the underside of the hasp you wish to replace. Once again don't worry about the stitching.
You should by now have revealed the back of the rivets that hold the hasp onto the case. Two types of rivet are commonly used. The first type has two legs that can be straightened with a flat headed screwdriver and extracted. The second usually has a washer capping it on the inside which can be carefully drilled out with a cordless drill.
Put the new hasp on, tapping down the new rivets with a hammer and reverse the process gluing the lining as you go (Evo-stick is best).
