Hi,

thanks the simple way did it. A few paper clips will keep my roasting until 
drums arive in Europe again, hopefully not in the too distant future.

If you can find a couple of lobster-claw jewelry clasps (stainless-steel, 
the bigger the better), they'll fit through the mesh and hold the door-flap 
closed.  (Use pliers to open the jaws if hot, or remove the drum and let it 
cool first).  Failing that, I'd suggest stripping the paper from twist-ties 
and twisting the bare wires closed just enough that you can either reopen 
them after the roast or snip them open and discard them. Even a paper clip 
might work.
