Saey Hanover II Side Door Latch.

Very popular in the 70's and 80's there is many brands of smaller hand fired coal stoves from many European countries. These can also date back to the turn of the last century. Imported stoves would include such brands as Franco Belge, Saey and Efel among many others.

Last night I felt cold enough to start a fire in my stove. When I got the stove cleaned out and the kindling in place ready to light I looked over at the side loading door and noticed that it was slightly open. Upon further inspection I noticed the latch is broken.

So, here I sit with my little bathroom heater running trying to keep warm waiting for a stove dealer to open, hoping against hope that they have a new latch in stock or if they could even get me one.

The latch is made from cast iron, but I'm wondering if I had one made of steel it would work as a plan "B".

57 degrees in the house is a little too cold for my comfort.

Well... I emailed bowmans stove and no dice. They told me that this was not a common part and they would have to get one from the foundry where ever that is and it won't be available until after the new year.

So, what I did was to take a 6" long 3/8" bolt, bent it 90 deg about half way, grind off the head. then I stuck the bolt under the latch hook and made a cross bar and screwed a nut on the end.

It's not elegant but it works. I'm thinking of having a new latch made out of 3/8" steel.

Did you try? http://www.bierlygroup.com/saey/index.htm

I believe they are the importers for Saey in the US. Their website has a parts section as well here: http://www.bierlygroup.com/saey/parts.htm

Hope this helps..
