D4 and D3 Main Housing to Water Pan Latch

Item does NOT include spring or pin. Please look under the "Related" tab.

Easily replace your broken latch (clasp, fastener) for all versions of the D4C SE (Special Edition), D4C, D3C, and D3A Rainbow.

Use a small punch and hammer to remove the brass pin holding in place. The pin has a smooth side and a rough side. The rough side bites into the plastic to hold the pin in place. Punch the pin from the smooth side to remove it.

This item is only available in black because the factory Rexair, LLC no longer makes color matching latches for the D3C or D3A. They also no longer make decal matching latches for the D4C (Special Edition) or the D4C.

Item numbers R4228, R3833, R2815, R2814, R2622, R1565, R1562, and R1561 are listed on some older latches. This item is the direct factory replacement.

  • 5/5 By Mike Wehnau On Jun 8th 2022

    "We had a broken latch , our son found you on the Internet . We ordered 2 latches ( in case the other one broke ) I followed your directions , it worked just fine . My wife loves her Rainbow . Thinking it couldn't be fixed , she bought a new Kirby (now we're stuck with that , we'd trade it in a minute for a Rainbow , now that we know where to buy one) . THANX For your prompt service & quality parts."

With a little care and preventive maintenance without a doubt they will last a lifetime! Thank you RainVac an amazing product!!"
