Cabinet Latch Repair

Hello all:

I found three cabinet latches not working that got my goat. After trying lubricant without success I finally took one apart and found out why they don't latch. I cut a piece of nylon and wrapped it back and forth three times, inserted it, VIOLA, it worked great.
Take it apart with a scall screwdriver, be careful there is a spring that can pop out. Place the nylon in place and you're good to go.

See pictures:

Please see nylon insert which acts like the spring that breaks.

Nylon shipping strap cut to fit.
