help needed please

Recommended Posts

i have repaired this case for a local business man he admits he puts far to much weight in it but thats what he needs it for. as you can see from the pic i replaced the bit that holds the handle on but i got the part from colledgens but it only has the fold out metal part to hold it on.Any idea where i can get the same part but with the screw on type fitting so i can strenghten it with a large trophy plate underneath with two holes then screw on from inside.

It's come off because the tabs have been bent outwards instead of inwards (overlapping each other) much stronger bent inwards.

Did you use a plate underneath?

good idea i never thought about bending them in the way i had used a scrap of trophy plate with 2 holes drilled in it. i will pop a new one in in the morning and bend inwards as i ordered a pair anyway and only needed one. if that no good ill try one of the companys mentioned above.

thanks for all the help.

or even better, solder the tabs closed and to the plate underneath.



I can just imagin novices soldering a "Bridge" bag costing 400 quid and burning the leather through,ooops :D :D
