how to fix the latch you have

i have had mine stop working twice, but each time it was because the little bolt between the rods that holds the mechanism came loose. yet each time the little clips you are replacing with your idea were/are still good and tight. but i live in AZ where it is pretty dry all the time and the latch at the bottom of the door never gets rusty or dirty from rain and snow and stuff. so i bet the people who get this problem like you maybe need to keep that bottom door latch clean and oiled so that it does not eventually get dirty or rusted and then stress out those lame little clips that hold onto the rods. just a thought.

Vince David says:

So I got the door that will not open and it's the latch on the bottom that the rod goes to… But trying to pull up on it caused the clip to break and the rod pulled out of the latch… I can't figure how to fix this now since I can't get the latch to work.. Any ideas?
