SummaryMy back gate's latch is a bit wonky and the wind has taken its toll on it. Was using a bent coat hanger to secure it, but knew I could do better. So I model and printed this. Maybe it will be an inspiration for you to make things that are useful to you.Print SettingsPrinter: I300ProRafts: NoSupports: NoResolution: 0.26mmInfill: 15%Notes: 2 shells.

Trying out MakerGeek's Raptor high-temp PLA. We'll see how well it holds up to the elements. May redo eventually in PET.Post-PrintingAssembled with a M5x10 socket head screw and a M5 locknut.How I Designed ThisI used Onshape to model it. Added a wavy spring to give a little give and added inner spikes to hold the post strap in place. If you want to dig through my Onshape file, you can check it out here:
