    Default Trailer door latch

    Hi

    My trailer's back door is held closed by two latches as shown in the photos below. As can be seen from the first photo, one of the bolts has snapped. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement bolt in the PE area ?

    Die heel beste is om een te maak. Jy sal nie daai gedeelte te koop kry nie.

    I think macNaughtons may keep those ex stock. Desert Wolf also use a similar catch.
    But I'm intrigued that the one in the photo still works, because the nut is on the wrong side of the bolt ?

    The barrel on the one in the photo is threaded and the nut on top is just a lock nut to stop the adjustment from moving by itself

    You can buy the complete latch at some of the outdoor shops - at Campworld R21 last year.
    Else get a piece of SS rod in same thickness, bent as required, cut a thread on the end to the correct lentgh, heat it to red hot on a gas stove and then dump it in a tin of water to sort out the stress.

    I managed to find a complete latch (R75 ex VAT) at ECL in Mackay Street, Just off Albany Road. They have all manner of latches applicable to trailers, caravans, bakkie canopies etc. Thanks for all the earlier suggestions.
