First, thanks for your timely replies. The end of my latch was somewhat buggered, so, in the heat of the afternoon, i simply grabbed a knife and trimmed the knife edge of the latch just a little. Just enough for the latch to release properly. I did pull the back side off and found the set screw, and will do a tension adjustment on that latch and a couple others in one of those "I feel like tinkering at the campsite moments." For now, I'm back in the game. Much thanks.
To be clear, my problem turned out to be a cable in need of adjustment, not a broken latch as suffered by the OP.
