Hey, I am also not thrilled with the stock latch on the 601. I was wondering if anyone had a part number for this latch or a similar one that would work? Thanks.

Do you have the part number? I can't seem to find it on Grainger's web site.

My order is in to Grainger. It will be here tomorrow.

This will relieve a lot of tension when I am flying my 601.

Many thanks for posting you solution.

Bought the latch from Granger. This is one of the best changes I have done on the 601 XLB. Dick Jones

Is this latch something that you worked out, or is there a latch that I can buy? This looks like a good solution to the problem of the 601 canopy not wanting to close properly.

I am in fear every time I take my 601 out that the latches that I have will fail.
