Finally fixed the cooler
« on: August 05, 2015, 09:11:24 AM »
I've got a 10 year old Igloo chest cooler that has been on many adventures.  A few years back the plastic hinges and latch broke.  The lid still nested on top well enough to keep using it, but it was a bit annoying and an accidental bump could leave it open if not corrected.  Finally got around to putting some new hardware on it.  Used $1.99 zinc plated steel hinges and a padlock hasp I had laying around.  Should be good for another 10 years at least. Took me less than 5 minutes to do, not quite sure why I put it off for so long, probably more lack of badassity!

Good work, I did a very similar fix on one of the really big coolers.
