The latches are attached by large Philips head screws. You cannot feel them unless you have the latches in the open position as the metal arms blocks felling it. That metal arm is also a problem as it is riveted in. To get the latch all the way out, you have to drive out a pressed in pin that holds in the chrome block and top hook. Then the latch, arm, chrome block, and hook come out together.
