these replacement latches for the older generation grizzly coolers could be attached to any cooler. I have the newer generationg grizzly 75 (rope handles instead of molded) and it has 3 latches on it that don't attache with screws. such as these. but are very similar.
opens and closes easily.

I make it a point never to drain my Yeti in front of Engel. Can't be too careful these days what with sex offender registries and what not.

So I'm rearranging my boat and came across with this older 160 true qt cooler that fit in my cat. Its geometry is not ideal but its workable. I can fit like 8 frozen jugs of water into it (no need to drain!) and still have a shitload of space and surface area to pack stuff in and around the jugs. So yeti is going to the front where its going to be the true beverage cooler that it was suitable for.

the only issues I've had is the "factory" latches are pretty much crap and one of the screws is pulling out so it won't be long before it comes out on its own.. but I'm starting to like the concept of just using some long loop straps to the frame and throw them out of the way of the door when access is needed. Maybe remove the latches and store them for the day I come across a nice but now discontinued used nrs 175 ....

I like where your heads at slamkal. Just ditch the latches, pull em off, and go loop straps, you will be happier, and with a dedicated beer cooler, you will be happiest!
