Gina, where did you get your over centre latches?  They look simple and strong.

Thanks all for your help. I think when I commence build next year (fingers crossed) when its drier weather I will go down the turnbuckle route.

Another vote for the screwfix turnbuckles.  I use one in each corner and they have held down my lightweight metal roof for 8 years, including through >60 mph gusts with no problems.
