repair dyson DC07 dirt cannister release?

The little tangs that hold the dirt cannister bottom door closed have broken off and cannot be found. Have been using duct tape as a temp fix. Any ideas?  Thanks,   Ken

Easiest by far is buy a replacement can - It shouldn't cost a lot.

Repair:

Fibreglass, Bolt/glue on a metal lip use an old tin can for materials, File and shape a spare bit of plastic to fit - then your wife/partner will understand why you NEVER throw anything away.
