PS the top part of the latch broke. Where it folds over on itself, on the lid. S
by latch, do you mean the hinges in the back? if so:
From another site:
Start by taking the old hinges off, making sure to save the screws. Now take a piece of old rubber hose - the reinforced ones works best - and cut off a section the same length as the old hinge. Now cut a slit down the length of the hose so you can flatten it out; this will be your new hinge. Place the hose piece up against the cooler where the hinge was, and use a knife or an ice pick to poke some holes in the hose that correspond with the screw holes in the cooler. Now you can attach the hose hinge with the same screws that held on the old hinge. These hinges are cheap and strong, and they last about 10 times longer than the original hinges!
