Default 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.

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.

Not sure how to use magnets on this one?

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.
