Step 1: Place the latch under handle
Place the latch under the lid handle so the square faces the inside of the bin and the hook at the end of the strap faces down.
Step 2: Hook the end through the square loop
Lift both ends of the latch and pass the hook end through the square loop.
Step 3: Pull through
Pull the hook end all the way through and pull firmly to tighten the strap around the handle.
If you’ve done everything correctly the strap will look like the image below and the strap length will pass OVER the side edge of the square loop.
You may see the square loop distort slightly as it is tensioned around the bin handle. This is a good thing as it’s locked on firmly and the S-Flex portion of the strap will be well relaxed (this is the shock absorber of the latch).
Step 4: Hook under bin lip
Pull the end of the latch down to fit the ‘hook’ on the back of the strap under the lip of the bin.
