Full Version: HP-67 / battery door - latch
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I'm looking for one / a pair of these original battery door latches / door bar for my HP-67. These latches are located at the top of the battery door (top left & top right) Unfortunally one of these small green latches are gone since years. Many thanks for your help in advance ... !!!

Kind regards from Germany,

Nate Martin modeled the latches for the classic battery door. But they don't fit for the HP-67. Perhaps somebody (or I) could create a 3D model for the HP-67 latches soon.

Ok, I will try to get to the door and latches for a HP67 soon. I need to finish the battery door for a 75 first.
I know this is old, BUT...
I am also looking for a replacement battery door w/latches.

Any progress on this???

I am hoping to have some available soon. These will be 3D printed copies. I have a couple of samples printed in gray. I now have some military green filament that is a really good match for the original color. A friend of mine has the 3D printer, and I bought the filament to give to him, so I will check on his progress !

Great news John! Keep me posted.

Great I#m interested too. Regards Erwin
I'm interested too! I could use a dozen or so.

My interim solution works, but doesn't look very good. That is to take the broken latch - (assuming you have the pieces) place them together as they would be, and glue a small patch of thin plastic over the top. This connects and supports the two broken pieces. I use old collar stays.

It would be great to have some replacements.

Mostly I need the door. Mine (from a used 67) is warped like the battery got too hot. One of the latches is broken but still sort of works. And only need one.

Johnboy - Any progress on the battery door?

Looks good! What about the door itself? That is what I need. (having them all would be best)

These latches are excellent and work well, I'm very happy with and recommend them!

The battery cover door is available on Shapeways site.
