This surface mounted, briefcase hasp is compatible with the surface mounted lock shown below. It is attached to the briefcase using steel prongs rather than rivets.The Hasp is currently only available in black because the antique brass and satin chrome finished have been discontinued.
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 neighborhood.
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).
Can I just say I am delighted and very impressed with the service you deliver. You were prompt and so responsive.
We were amazed that we returned the original coat as it was too small and I only sent it yesterday and you have notified I will receive it tomorrow!!! That is amazing and after months of enduring disrupted and often poor service we are so grateful to have been on the receiving end of your wonderful service.
Thank you so much and you will be our first point of call for future needs. Kind regards
