The latch is plastic and it's hard to tell if it's latched from the door side. We ended up using a bungee cord and swimming noodle between the door and awning. I'd use this as a reason to lower the price. We didn't realize this until after we signed the papers...
Are you talking about the air gun that holds the door out at 90 degrees? Or the actual latch that closes and locks the door?
Our air gun broke after about a year and we use a bungi cord to hold it open and we actually PREFER the bunji cord. I never liked that door hanging open at 90 degrees, and with the bunji it opens to almost 180 degrees with the canopy retracted, and something like 130 degrees with the canopy open. We just bungi it to the canopy support bar and it stays good and tight.
