I have that same latch on my new cargo trailer,
It has stuck twice.
Each time was when the temps dropped big time after a snow or rain. moisture on it froze and that kept it from releasing,
Take a hammer and tap lightly to push the latch back in the direction it would normally be going.
Would actually see little ice pieces fall out as I did it.


Good suggestion also, I bet u better keep that hammer handy this week from what I see on the weather reports out here u guys are in for some dosey of a cold spell... It was a lil chilly here today, only a high of 68, lol. JUST KIDDING, I am from JOYSEY and know how cold it can get. GOOD LUCK.
