I have a hidden latch operated by a cable in the right nose opening. I saw an even better method on an RV8 in Cal. The top 2/3 pushed IN to open and the bottom 1/3 held it shut with a magnet. If you forgot to close, air pressure would close it naturally.
A horizontal piano hinge about an inch up from the bottom.
Top portion pushes IN to open. Bottom portion rotates up.
Bottom fixed portion contains a magnet to secure.
RV-9A N946PM 600+ hours since 2013
