Somewhere I posted pics of latches I fixed.  I just cut the top off, fixed the broken springs an welded the tube back together.  Have to watch the weld heat as you can soak the spring and make it weak(ask me how I know).  But, in the end it worked.  Your way is the proper way, if the threaded insert has any chance of coming apart.  Mine weren't too pretty.
