I saw your e-mail dated July 8, '03.
I have been using one for 43 years in Florida and it was almost indestructible
until the last three hurricanes.
The hinge, pin and attached plate were bent out of shape and so I am having a
metalsmith make new ones.
By now you may have solved your problem but if not, drop me a line.
