Here's a small update on the extra push-click latches for the filters on the Enthoo Primo we were discussing a month or so ago
since they seem a bit prone to failing (I've had to get two replaced from Phanteks already, and so have several others here).
Back then I placed two different orders, one for 5 of the latches from an eBay seller in the UK that came to ~$12 with shipping to the US, and I went ahead and ordered a 4 pack them at about the same time from a US supplier, Homeclick, that came to ~$15.50 with shipping. I ordered from both because none of us at the time were sure if one or the other would be a correct match as a replacement for the latches on the Enthoo Primo.
Well, the Homeclick order was supposed to arrive first but my order got lost in their system. Even though they got their money right away if I hadn't called to ask about why it was taking so long it never would have gotten shipped.
The eBay order from the UK took right at a month to arrive. It apparently sat for two weeks in the black hole that is US Customs in Chicago. That said, it did show up a couple days before my order from Homeclick did, and came very well packaged wrapped in bubble wrap. The latches are a perfect match for the Enthoo Primo.
The Homeclick order finally did arrive yesterday. While it is likewise is a perfect match for the case, I only received one of the latches even though my order was for a 4 pack of them. On top of that the latch came packaged simply in a heavy-gauge plastic bag in an envelope with no padding. The latch itself was open, with the little prongs sticking out like outstretched arms, and I have to say that I'm VERY surprised it's not broken. You can just look at the latch and see it's pretty fragile especially opened up like that. The reason my order is wrong seems to be related to how it got lost and delayed in the first place. Homeclick apparently doesn't keep any of them in stock. Instead, they have them drop-shipped from the manufacturer, and the communication between them and the manufacturer is obviously FAIL on every level. soooo, I have contacted them again
and am supposedly getting sent 3 more of the latches. I won't be holding my breath.
Anywho, all that just to say that if anyone else is looking, like I was, to stockpile a few extra of the latches so they wouldn't have to go through Phanteks support and wait should theirs break, they definitely can be had, but I'd avoid that Homeclick place like the plague if I was you. In the US I've found them referred to as a non-magnetic mini touch latch
and in the UK they can be found by searching for a 'push click bin latch
