Jon’s battery door latch is the best solution.Thanks. I tried to obtain this part from Uniden and was told this is now an internal part and that I would have to send my SDS100 to Uniden to get it repaired for around $90.
I would be very curious to hear from our Uniden representative as to why Uniden offers replacement Battery Latches for their portable Marine radios, but not for the SDS100. The 2 parts are almost 100% identical. The only difference is the one for the Marine radios is about 1/8 inch shorter.
