OH.
So I'm having a few coons venturing in my yard again! :( And I'm not going to put up with them after what they did to my last flock. So I'm going to get some good latches for my coop but don't no which are good and which aren't and where to get them and how much they are. Thanks for any help or advice!

I use self locking gate latches secured with a carabiner on all my doors. The only thing to look out for would be the door closing behind you and having no one to let you out.

I use lockable barrel bolts And carabiners. I also shim one side of the barrel bolt so it's more of a pressure fit. Hasps and carabiners would work as well.

A quote I heard, which is apt, is "if a 5 year old can open it a raccoon can". In my experience it hold true from a mental or physical standpoint. If it takes some stronger or more clever than a 5yo, you're probably coon safe.
