Hi Forumites
Does any one know how to replace the retaining tag that tucks in behind the lip of the inner liner on "Esky" & "Coleman" eskies?
These tags have pulled out when the lads used the esky as a cricket wicket!
The only way I can see that it might be possible is to drill out the plastic pop-rivets / grommets. One would then have to obtain a supply of these rivets / grommets (from where?)

Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

Thanks NN
I dont believe I explained myself too well.
The catch assembly itself isn't broken. Its only that the plastic backing needs reinserting back behind the lip of the liner on the outside where it meets the outer casing.
The plastic seems too stiff to bend & reinsert between the inner liner & the outer body.

Hi John,
I hope this is perhaps the answer to the last question re: grommets at least.
I my self was after some speed nuts & I went to Burson's Auto Parts (their like repco), when looking at the "chapion' nuts & bolts stand I saw grommets of different sizes were available. Hope this helps.
