How to fix garage door bracket?



My manual garage door latch has snapped off on the right and partially off the left side. I need to securely reattach so I can lock/unlock it. As per the images, a certain type of screw is used to fasten them in place. Need advice on what to use?

Re: How to fix garage door bracket

Hello @NumeroUno 


Those fixings you are looking at are called blind rivets. If you use a drill bit one size smaller than the blind rivets attached, you'll be able to remove the old rivets and replace them with new ones.


I propose using a Craftright Rivet Gun Set it comes with multiple head sizes and several packets of blind rivets. Make sure to test the size of the rivet before you attach them permanently.


If you have any other questions we can help with, please let us know.
