Unhappy herf-a-dor Parts - Locks/Clasps

I have a herf-a-dor travel box. I was recently in a sail boat race and the boat sank in 65 feet of water. I had the box with me on the boat. When the boat was salvaged, the cigars were inside, but both clasps/locks were missing. I guess in some way the rapid change in water pressure (either up or down) forced the clasps off. I have looked in stores and online but cannot find any place were I can get replacement clasps. Any suggestions as using rubber bands is not the best thing...

Thanks

I'm guessing you lost the race. The locks tend to come off rather easily, and I would imagine the manufacturer would be the one to contact. Unless the box is a 40 count, you will probably pay just as much or more as for a new box.

Smile Resolved!

As it turns out, this item is made by XIKAR, Inc. I contacted them and they said it is covered under a lifetime warranty. So they are taking corrective action!

Nice!

PS: technically we had to "Drop Out" of the race. But I am happy I made it home in one piece! If interested, here is a link to the event http://suffolktimes.timesreview.com/...fellow-racers/

Glad to hear that. Good thing the race was in October and not in what looks to be the all time record cold month of February 2015.
