    anybody know if I can update/upgrade the door latch on my early 80's vermont castings vigilant. I have the old style latch with the bolt. Someone said there is a system which uses a roller latch type set up. Where do I get it? Thanks guys.

    So far I've found the roller pawls to be disappointing. Sometimes they work well, but there's not a way to make adjustments as well as the old type of pawl. On some stoves I can't get the door to close at all! I don't know if the old style pawls are even still available now, God I hope so!
