Let's face it, your Territory well over 10 years old if it needs this part (2004-2011). However we still have plenty left, so out they go!
The latch broke on our Ford Territory 2 days after we bought it in 2012. I was shocked Ford wanted to charge me over $500. So instead, I pulled the latch apart, found the broken bit, and then designed and 3D printed an improved replacement. We've 3D printed and sold over 1,500 since then.
Ford want you to replace the whole compartment for $500 plus fitting. And second hand isn't much better (about $300 for the compartment from wreckers in Australia)
Why is this part broken in so many Territories? Because the method of manufacture (injection moulding) requires holes in the part for support pins to hold the mould in place for the overhanging bits. 3D printing doesn't need holes. So we have solved the problem.
We made it stronger. Extra reinforcing around the hook part. We removed the holes near the hook as well. We left a couple of small holes in it to allow you to easily locate the springs, and because it's 3D printed, it has just a little bit of inbuilt flexibility so it can bend instead of break.
This is a custom designed, 3D printed part (made in Brisbane, Australia) that you can use to easily repair your latch instead of replacing the whole dash compartment lid! When you buy this you are getting an Australian designed and manufactured product, as well as supporting a small family business, and encouraging a bit of Aussie ingenuity. Thanks!
Dozens in stock. Shipped same or next business day. Includes instructions and a Tax Invoice.
Simple answer: Yes.
We only sell one part. All Ford Territories with a compartment on the top of the dash use the same latch. When it breaks the compartment won't stay closed. You end up with a hook like bit that is usually still in the latch, but loose and disconnected. This is the part that fixes the problem.
If for any reason it isn't the right part, I'll refund your full purchase price and your postage to send it back to us. We've helped over 1,000 Territory owners fix this problem with our 3D printed latch, and we haven't had a single one of our latches not fit or not fix the problem.
If you want to be certain, watch the video and pull apart your existing latch. You should end up with a broken part like the one shown in the video (and further below on this page)

We love our 3D printed latches, and we want you to love yours too. So you get a 12 month guarantee. We will happily refund your money or replace the part if it doesn't fit, breaks, doesn't work how you expected it to, doesn't fix the problem, is too ugly, isn't what you expected, or if you are in any way unhappy with the part. We will even reimburse reasonable postage costs to return it to us from anywhere in Australia, and if you'd like a replacement we will pay to send the replacement part back to you.
We really want you to love this part, so if you have a problem we really want to know about it, and we really want to help. Please get in touch if you have any problems at all.

Friendly, prompt personal service from Daniel, amazing colour photograph instructions (and YouTube video!!), bombproof construction compared to half baked design of Ford original made from half sucked spaghetti noodle. Bingtastic aftermarket upgrade works a treat!!Rapid and hassle free delivery to small town New Zealand. 100% recommended!!!
Fortune 500 companies would do well to follow Bingtastic see what good service is really about.
Hi, Initially very hesitant to order from Bingtastic – but an old friend needed new pipe bag. After a few Dr Google searches found Bingtastic – a local supplier at an extremely competitive price. Ordered from the website and arrived within two days – fantastic. Found Bingtastic to be extremely reliable and extreme value for money.
Excellent product that does as advertised, arrived promptly in Western Australia and easy to install with great instructions. On top of that, Daniel is an absolute pleasure to deal with and I’m sure if there were any issues he is only an email away. Stop having doubts and order straightaway if you have a latch problem!
Thanks Daniel. The latch arrived today. 5 minutes work. It is in and works great. Best $32 bucks I ever spent. Funny how annoying that open lid is. Your instructions were very clear although I have had it out previously to ascertain the problem. Found your site and ordered it straight away. I could see the difference and that it would be stronger than the original part. Arrived within a week to NZ. Packaged great. Very happy.Cheers
Founded in 1997 by Daniel and Helen Bingham, Bingtastic is a family owned and operated small business based in Queensland, Australia. We initially provided IT support to many organisations including state government, and in 2011 we narrowed our focus to programming. We specialise in creating custom coded cloud applications.
We also sell a few special items:
We sell a 3D printed car part because when ours broke, there were none available and it was a great excuse to buy a 3D printer (we’re up to our 6th 3D printer now).
We sell a book about making Beale pianos because we own and play a Beale piano, and our information site (findthingy.com) has a page dedicated to Beale Pianos which has proven very popular with Beale owners, and we were fortunate enough to be contacted by the Beale family to sell this book.
We sell bagpipe bits because we live bagpipes. Daniel Bingham has been bagpiping since 1983, including 6 years as the Pipe Major of a Queensland pipe band. Our family has many pipers and drummers, and we wish to help other pipers and drummers access quality gear at decent prices.
Thanks for visiting our site. Have a great day!
