Teak enclosure - latch recommendations needed
I'm planning to install a teak panel/enclosure for our stereo and VHF above a shelf in the nav station. I'm a novice woodworker, but I believe I can keep the project fairly simple. Because of the configuration, it would not be possible to set up the panel on hinges. So at the minimum, I would like to install it with some sort of latch at each of the 4 corners so I can remove the panel easily (and over and over, as needed).
Optionally, I would also consider using machine screws, if there's a simple and common way to install a nut on the opposite side. Just so long as I'm not using wood screws, I'd be satisfied.
Can anyone recommend a latch or machine screw configuration that will hold the panel securely, is easy to install, and makes the panel removable?
