i reccomend a torch!:flame:



that, or weld it shut and mold it, haha...:welder:



but fer real, cant you reach in and get the rods? or maybe from the inside of the bed you can use a screwdriver to push the latch mechanism back? you'd probly need two people for that.

You need to somehow get the bars that connect to your latch & pull them to where they open. I would tie them up with something until you can get a replacement
