Default Canopy latch problem

Many people have had a problem with the safety latch not catching.

It has been suggested by i thin whilhemson that there is a simple solution and that is to switch the material that the latch is made of.

Cozy plans call for a piece of Stainless Steel to be bent to shape with a hole and that it just be bent out of the way to open it and it will automatically catch when the canopy is closed.

The problem is Stainless Steel is not spring steel, spring steel is spring steel. Stainless Steel will over time take a new set to a position that will not automatically catch the canopy

SOOO, change the material on your catch to one that will work as a spring properly, spring steel.
