Printed the item out but found that the inside clip is too thin. It requires more support around the area in which it snaps onto the underlying piece. The sizes seemed spot on for everything else. .

Huh.... I did not have that problem with mine. The only problem I had was with the hinge being not sturdy enough to handle the opening and shutting action of a cooler latch. I'll have to fix that problem.

Nice job! I'm glad it worked for you, and your modifications are great. Did you have any problems? Another user here tried to print the original version I posted, but in a smaller size and had trouble with it working. I'd like to hear if you or anyone else has had any problems.


Actually, it worked well for a while, but eventually the hinge broke after a long camping trip. It served the purpose when I needed a cooler. The hinge for this application needs to be a larger.
