Our American-made rubber latches are tough as nails.  Tear-resistant to 170 pounds, these heavy-duty cantilever latches are designed to take a beating.  Accidents happen but fortunately we have replacement parts. 

These latches are for GEN1 Coolers produced from 2012 through 2017.  How do you tell the difference?  GEN1 Coolers have "Made in USA" stamped on the front of the coolers and off to the side. 

Pins are included for easy installation in the following:

2 Latches Included - 25 QT, 50 QT, 75 QT and 100 QT Bison Coolers

3 Latches Included - 150 QT Bison Cooler


Where are the Cups made?

We are proud to make our Hard coolers and Soft coolers in the USA

Our Drinkware is imported, but in fact ALLstainless steal, double walled, vacuum sealed drinkware from all brands are imported. So there is no such thing as a USA tumbler it doesn'texist.

*We do go the extra mile by printing, assembling and finishing the drinkware in our Ft Worth Texas facility and because of that we are able to hire more workers here in Texas to work that process. 

Why all Tumblers are Not Made in The USA?

1. The raw material of stainless steel. China has the biggest production output for stainless steel material so that they have the most competitive cost.

2. Lack of skill manufacturing engineer and workers. The stainless steel manufacturing production relies on a lot of workers and experienced engineers. Although automation equipment can replace workers but it needs big investment at the beginning and big volume order quantities to support the constant production.

3. Strict environment policy. The stainless steel tumbler is reusable, environmental- and eco-friendly. But the manufacturing process related to plating, electrolysis, polishing and painting all have pollution, which is not accepted in the USA.

In short, there can be no stainless steel tumblers made in the United States because

  • labor
  • cost
  • efficiency
  • environment factors.

This is why all Tumblers are made in other countries except the United States.

Care Instructions?

Non printed Tumblers are top Shelf Dishwater safe.

*Printed cups should be hand washed.

    New Latches (GEN1)

    They worked out. A little complicated to install but worth the effort. Now I am going to get me a new gasket.

    My cooler is roughly 12 years old and has been holding up great. Recently I broke a latch and started to panic thinking I would need to buy a whole new cooler. After researching I found the gen 1 parts and completely updated my cooler and she works like it is brand new. So glad I found the parts.

    Outstanding service!

    I was able to totally overhaul my 12 year old Gen 1 coolers which are the 70qt, 100qt, and 150qt models. Brand new latches, drain plugs, and all footings on my coolers. Excellent customer service! Do not hesitate to replace the old for beautiful new parts.
