I've never had one or even tried them on or looked at them in the store. I have a friend that bought one and loves it, but I didn't talk to him about the features or how it's made so was unaware of the latch mechanism. I thought I remembered reading somewhere that it was metal but can't say that for sure. I just read some of the reviews on it and none of them mentioned the latch mechanism but did mention other issues, primarily that when you open the flip up it partially obstructs your view because it doesn't open far enough. Based on the report of the plastic mechanism and the obstructed view with the flip open I would not recommend one of these either.
