    I bought this case several years ago for a tour. It's seen some use. The clasps that hold it closed are almost all broken or missing.

    My question: Any ideas where I can buy replacement clasps? I don't know who makes this. I only know it was cheap. The guy I bought it from did not know what brand it was, either.

    Also, does anyone know who makes these?

    I am leaving for a tour next week and as a temporary fix will likely move the one remaining clasp down to the bottom and close the neck with some kind of ratchet strap.

    We are traveling by van, and I would rather not depend on my Mooradian bag for protection in case a piece of heavy gear falls on it during the drive.

    Looks like a Jakob winter case!

    I am pretty sure Stewart MacDonald has them. I would think that a google search on case clasps or the like would find you what you are looking for.
