Tom from SWISCO responded:
Sure! To replace this latch, first grip the tab at the end of the clip with pliers and rotate it out of the channel, as if you were opening the clip. It will take a little elbow grease, but the clip can be pulled out of the channel this way. For the new clip, grab the internal tab with pliers and bend it towards the interior. Then insert the back corner of the clip into the slot and rotate it into place. See the image below for a little aid and let me know if you have any other questions!
