    Squall HP Canopy Latch

    My rear canopy latch broke. From the beginning it liked to jettison the canopy on landing. Anyone know if replacements are available or what others have done to hold the canopy on? Tape would probably work but would take some foam with it every time it is removed.

    Take offs are optional, landings are mandatory.

    I made a new one from a bobby pin I stole from my wife. I have also used 2-56 wire with a 's' bend epoxied in.

    I just lay down a piece of scotch tape on the back of mine. Make sure the front hook is engaged first. Never have a problem.
