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).
Many thanks for your excellent service. The suitcase wheels arrived less than 24 hours after order and my husband fitted them to our Brics jumbo size holdall. The leather is in great nick but the wheels and some other plastic parts have been badly damaged in transit. So now with your wheels it should be good for a long time.
