Remove the old hasp from the flap by un-screwing it or drilling out the screws.
Put the new hasp on the Flap of the case and secure in place with the grub screws.
Cut the lining or un-stitch a seam to reveal the back of the old lock.
Prise up the metal prongs securing the old lock remove the back plate and then remove the lock.
To ensure correct positioning of the new lock engage it into the hasp on the flap and (whilst the lock is engaged) gently press the lock prongs into the main panel of the bag.
After the above method you should see 4/2 prong marks indicating where you need to cut the panel. Cut the panel gently with a craft knife ensuring the slot is not too long (its easy to apply too much pressure with a sharp knife).
Push the prongs through the slots and on the inside put the back plate over the prongs and fold them down.
Once you are happy the lock is in the correct position (having opened and close it a couple of times) stick/ stitch the lining back. (A patch can be cut and stuck with evo-stick or you could simply use a fabric tape.)
I wanted to say a big thankyou. My new Barbour Classic Bedale arrived this morning....what a prompt efficient service.
I chose to purchase from Cox the Saddler because I was well aware that you are an old family business there in Chesham and I knew Chesham well in the 1970s and have fond memories of the place.
I saw your presence on Facebook and your videos on YouTube, but, most of all, I was impressed by the willing advice and help you were giving out as Leathershop Girl on Reddit. That showed me that you really care.
This is my second Bedale jacket. My first is twenty years old and ripped (not worth all the expense of Barbour repairs I fear) but I still keep it for gardening.
All the best to you...I hope that Cox the Saddler will flourish into the future.
