you know what would be realy cool? those magnet things that some cupboards have, where you just push the door and let go and it pops open, then you just shut it and it stays.
that would be amazing!

Hmmmm ... That is quite an idea . .. . . *mind ticks over*
I'm thinking a sort of lever with a lock... hard to explain.. its the sort of thing u'd see on the side of an instrument case etc.. i have one and it does the job quite nicely BUT once again i'm still in planning so please ppl pics, ideas or anything is much appreciated

I just picked up a Cabinet clip for under a buck at the home depot. Add hinges and viola!

The cheiftech Dragon case has a nice locking handle.


Or you can use a bar lock like the front cove on my rack mounted case (see 1st picture)
