I have a couple of 404's running and as time passed they all started to leak around the handles, I tried new o-rings, new handles, and Vaseline around the seal but couldn't get it to stop leaking. The 404's cover doesn't latch like my new 405's so this was the final fix, easy install converting to the new case with the locking handles and hasn't leaked in over a year.
