I really don't see how they could go on the outside and work and yet, I agree I dont't think they can mount to the lid where they are currently mocked up and still allow gasket installation. Looks like they would be difficult to locate blindly and still get the lid to fit snug and tight on the gasket. Guess we'll have to wait & see. Glad to see someone doing this though before I start mine. Get it worked out and let me know how to do it the asy way! Thanks for starting this project.Looks like you have it sitting on the lid lip. Wouldn't that go on the outside of the bag? Might want to try some double sided tape to make sure they actually close right before you go much further. Might have to mod the lid some and mount them higher to get them to work. Very interested to see if these can be made to work. Looks like our bags are very close to made the same.
I didn't mean the hinge would go outside. It looks like in it's current location, the lid would not seal, leaving it sitting proud, and "outside" of where it would need to be. It looks like if there is a flat part up on the next contour, it may fit there and allow for it to close correctly with a different mounting position for the lower portion.I really don't see how they could go on the outside and work and yet, I agree I dont't think they can mount to the lid where they are currently mocked up
