I have had the same issue. There aretwo black plastic bits which act as stopson the metal springythingies..my two bits were actually one brokenpiece folding around the lid stop. To cut a long ramble short, I went to ask if the clips were availible. The answer was no, a whole new lid complete would include the offending plastic bits!! I managed to find a piece of similar shaped plastic ( 1960's plastic rawlplugs.) and used it to hold the lid shut, It has been o.k. but I must say that I do not use the storage which seems a bit of an after thought. Imagine a bar of chocolate left in there? Mmmnnnn. chocolate............ G'night.
