Product Code: C1212BR

This replacement flap catch is quite common in flap over handbags. It is Brass coloured and comes with a back plate for the turnkey base plate together with a screw together front plate. This is the best fitting I have found to replace some of the Mulberry turn key fittings.

Dimensions are as follows:

Top Plate (with the hole in): 72mm x 38mm
Bottom Plate (with turn key): 65mm x 31mm
Turn Key Length: 16mm
Hole Dimensions: 19mm x 8mm

This range of replacement parts is useful for practically minded people, who have a broken handbag or briefcase they do not want to part with and who do not have a saddler or luggage repairer in their neighbourhood.

If you have any queries about the suitability of this luggage spare or would like us to carry out the repair, please call +44 1494 775577 and ask to speak to Paul.

Price: 15.00 (12.50 ex VAT)

(Approx. 17.35 USD US Dollars, 14.08 EUR Euros, 1,859.85 JPY Japan Yen)

Replacing A Handbag Turnclasp

Step 1 Check that the back plate is compatible with the existing front plate.
Step 2 We would unstitch a seam and fix the plate but you might find it easier to cut the lining. This can be very neat if executed correctly.
Step 3 Once you have made a neat cut inside the lining, you will probably see the patch that covers the back of the catch, peel this off.
Step 4 The next step is to lift the legs of the broken clasp (sometimes there are screws instead. Take the backplate off and release the broken clasp.
Step 4 Once the old clasp is off, offer the new one up and mark the holes required for the spikes on the front panel. If you are happy with the position, make the holes (I use a small blade) and push the new clasp on.
Step 4 Put the backplate on (I have pushed the spikes right through the lining and held it all in place with the back plate but its your choice) and bend the spikes over, to trap the backplate (and possibly lining) in position.
Step 4 Patch the backplate with a piece of material or stitch it up (I have had great results with some thin leather and double sided tape on the backplate). Finished

Dear Sara and Paul,

Many thanks for sending the turnclasp so quickly. It arrived on Tuesday.

It is the perfect replacement clasp for a favourite bag which needed mending :-)

I really appreciate your excellent service.

Best wishes

Sara & Paul,

This is just to confirm safe delivery of the handbag strap which will enable me to use a nice bag which I've neglected for ages as its own strap is far too long, not ajustable, too narrow and therefore uncomfortable. I Googled 'brown leather handbag strap' and was delighted to find I could buy exactly what I wanted - colour, width, length, adjustable, clip-on - from yourselves. Many thanks for the very prompt and efficient service too.

Best Regards,

Marion H., Edinburgh
