The obvious solution to repairing a missing (lost) latch pin from the lock on the X10 by replacing the back panel (very expensive) is not correct.  Just repair it yourself.

This is a "do it yourself" project.

You have two choices of materials to use.

You can either use a Brad Nail or a Pushrod wire that is available at a Radio Control Hobby Shop.

Shorten the material to 7/32" and insert it in the hole on the latch.  Make sure that you slightly bend the wire so that it will not escape in the future.

Problem Solved!!!
