Ghetto-rigging a latch onto a a Sheridan Speed Loader?
Since I'm not so sure my title is very clear, I'm wondering if anyone has a substitute for the latch system implemented in the Sheridan Speed Loader. I ask because I received basically the body of a speed loader and nothing else, and I'd like to make it functional in any sense, with ghetto being fine (and preferred). I was thinking use a Phantom ball gate ring-thingie, but don't know if the diameter of the loader is too small. So if anyone has any ideas or has tried something out before, please let me know!
And mod squad, if this is more fitting in the DIY section, please feel free to move it on over there. If you do, I'll figure it out eventually.

If I am getting it right you got speed gate that doesn't have the lever/latch and you are wanting to make your own ball gate for.
I have had decent luck using zip ties before though never tried them in a speed gate.
If you can get your hands on one you may want to try the bend sensor from a ricochet hopper. If placed correctly it should allow a ball to be put into the feed tube and not allow it to come out.

I have used the Pro-Team ball detents before to make speed loaders and they worked great. You could also just make a replacement for the lever part out of plastic and the spring and pin could be bought at a hardware store. You would have to do some trial and error on making the part unless you had one to patteren it after. Lastly you could drill through the other side and use a cocker pull pin to keep the balls in(did this with a site rail once, worked great) and you just pull it out to fill and replace once finished loading.

You may try to contact PPS. They should have the parts on hand.
