I made a mistake installing latches on my cookers cooking chamber. I was wondering if using JB weld would patch the small screw holes? Specs for JB weld says it can withstand up to 550 degrees. If my cooking chamber gets that hot I have a BIG problem. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Why not just weld up the holes and grind them down smooth?

How about putting some black (assuming the cooker is black) machine screws back in the holes? Believe me, you'll be the only person that notices them.

How about making a backer plate to cover the holes? It will look like it is supposed to be there for strength.
Do you have a pic of the problem?

K.A.M. I sorry I dont have a picture. My wife said to just leave the latches where they are and it would be fine. I like all the ideas that have been suggested. Thanks so much for the ideas! The screw idea has me thinking. I could put some black sealant on the back of the screw heads and it would look fine. You guys are AWESOME!!

Run the screw in from the inside, grind what sticks out.
