Parts Upgrade

I thought I had read a Post about the FR3 30DS door retaining cylinder. Its on the bottom of the main door, and it has pulled free from a cheesy mount. The cylinder has metal screw in rods, but the receivers are plastic and will never hold up. n Anyone do a replacement on this? What did you use, and from where?

Also, anyone know where I can get a duplicate of the cabinet latches?

Mine just crapped out today. Bringing it in for warranty tomorrow. If anyone has a source for the plastic mounts, I'd like to order a couple of dozen. Doesn't seem like they'll last very long. I suppose I could super glue the the rod into the mount.

Replace the end with a spherical rod end and bolt.
