The simplest idea I have seen is a handle with a lever on the inside. You turn the handle and the tab closes by pivoting down and latches the door shut. Mechanism is similar to you damper handle, but, is in the door with the tab catching the inside edge of the pit opening.

Sorry Warren, I do not. The handle I am thinking of is similar to that on a Bandera Smoker, maybe someone has a picture. I have seen really cheap versions on other upright box smokers as well.
