Door Latch source?

Post by Atama » March 30th, 2015, 8:27 pm

I am planning out a gravity fed style smoker, and am trying to find a source for the door latches like the ones found on a Backwoods smoker. Could be that I just am not using the "correct" name for these latches, but I am coming up empty on them. Can someone help me out and point me towards a place to source them? Thanks!!!

The ones I used are DeStaco. They call these toggle clamps and the have a wide variety of angles and sizes and pull strength. Look on the parts pages of the site ( smokerplans.net ). To see if this is what you are talking about. If not check Amazon


Make no mistake, there ain't no powder in this Puff ! And... I'm not really a crazy person but I play one in real life
