    They are mass produced plastic and they still want about £5.00 each.

    This is the "free market" that everyone goes on about with such gusto.

    This country did away with Retail Price Maintainance many years ago.

    Anyway, what is it?

    We've all got them on our fridges. Just a little plastic snap-on slider. You won't get one of those for £5! :Eeek: I couldn't get one for twice that much. Even the chap who sold it meagreed they were ridiculously priced.

    We had one of them fail at the Dusseldorf show last year. Went to the Dometic stand and they replaced it.

    All I can say is thank you to the nice German chap who gave us the new one free of charge...:thumb:
