If you read his post you would have clearly deduced that the hinges, latches, and hodgepodge assortment of rusty bolts, nuts, and self tapping screws is the best way to create a dry-box
Regarding the lacerations to your leg, i refer you to frontier play's vendor of drysuit in Laos.
They put an extra thick layer of tire tread on the calf to protect you from those superior latches. (Cause everyone i know on the river needs to padlock their drybox to keep their sidearms secure)
