I bought hard bags for my CR when they were half price, and did the washer thing and elongated the holes in the latch so I wouldn't have the problem many have with wear. Well, after a couple thousand miles I saw the beginning of a notch anyway. So here's my fix, I think it should be a final repair for anyone with this problem. It's a U nut from Ace, about 50 cents. Make sure it has the full back...many have a cutout which wouldn't do. The screw is to keep it from shifting, and cut off to allow the mechanism to latch.
