    I just used the little screws supplied with the gas lift
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    So after quite a bit of use of the Romer 40L, the only drawback I've found is my mrs and daughter battle to latch the lid closed, the rubber latches seem a bit tight for their delicate hands and so I often find it closed but not latched
    I must say my kid is a bit better as she sits on the lid then pulls latches down to close, wife not so much, so ice lasts only a day or so.
    Drinks are fantastically cold as they lie in the ice cold water, a rack of some sort would work well to keep un vacuum packed meat out of the water in the bottom.

    What you can do is to take a pencil and rub it where the the rubber slips into the slot. The graphite works as a lubricant but is not really messy. Makes it just that little easier.

    Iíve had my 45l Romer for just over a year now and it keeps impressing me every time I use it. This past December it once again did a great job in the Mozambique heat, keeping the beer cold or the ice lasting, whatever I ask from it.
    Apart from The job of keeping things cool, my favourite feature is probably being able to sit on it and the bottle opener in the lid. I actually want to get a 40l one as well at some point.
    I don't drink water, unless it's been through a brewery first.

    I can also vouch for the Romer. Used it as an outdoor fridge from middle December all the way to New Years. Popped in the drinks & a bit of water. Cooled everything down with 2 bags of ice. Then rotated 2 bottles of water which I froze overnight & placed in the cooler during the day. Water & drinks stayed icy, despite the 36 degree heat.

    Any advice how to replace a latch that has broken? It was kept closed with 1 latch inside!

    Maybe give Romer a call, ask them where you can get a replacement and whether they have any tips on replacing it. From what I remember, the whole idea behind the simple design of the Romer was that it can be fixed in the field using almost any off the shelf parts.

    Coming to the end of the December break, my Romer was brilliant! Two weeks in Kruger with temperatures hovering around 40 degrees and we had ice and cold drinks all the way. Then two weeks with a house full of family - the Romer again did what it promised in spite of being opened and closed like a revolving door. And, it provided a seat when needed. One of my best purchases without a doubt.
