Re: door lock

Is there any sticker on the hatch or door? There is a FP owners group on line.
Maybe they plan help. If we had more photos, we might be able to suggest another lock mechanism.

What exactly is broken? I can 3d print the little cars that go into the track that the mechanism the hook hooks into screws to, if that is what broke on yours. We had the same issue on our Mahe and couldn't figure out the lock maker or find any parts.

If that doesn't work let me know and when I get home to the 3D printer in about 3 weeks I can print some up and send them to you.
