How to remove a latch pin

  1. Locate the tip of a #4 X 5/8" self tapping AB point screw in the center of the latch pin to be removed.

  2. Hammer in the screw tip to start the screw digging into the center of latch pin.

  3. With the screw driver (tip #2 or smaller), applying pressure insert the screw into the center of the pin (4 to 5 full turns should be enough). If you go too far unscrew it enough to fit a pair of pliers between case and screw head.

  4. Using a pair of pliers as a lever, grip the screw and pry down against the case to move the screw up to start removing the pin.

  5. Using the pliers pull out the latch pin.

  6. The pin is now removed.
