When I was removing the oven door, one of the latches shifted closed and I can't figure out how to open it so that I can re-install it.

You've got to open the latch back up with some vise grips and slide a nail through the hole when it's open. Reinstall, then pull the nails.

I carry a 1 1/2 foot piece of 1" pvc that works perfectly to extend and hold the hinge in position allowing you to move the latch into place.  Gives great leverage and doesn't damage the hinge arm.
