I bought this lock to replace the original on my Trillium 1300 fiberglass trailer. Although not the exact size as the original I was able to adapt it by use of metal plates. The new latch is simpler and much more robust than the original. A liberal coating of grease on the moving parts makes for a smooth operation. 580226

good quality latch looks like it will hold up to years of use, works good and looks good , and installed pretty easy. I installed it on my car trailer service door and it fits real nice. I would of rated it 5 star but the back side of the latch on the inside of door does not have a trim ring it would improve the appearance of the installation. I will fabricate my own to cover the ruff edge of the opening. 316108

Here are some pictures from the horse trailer upgrade. Picture A is the old handle and removal. Picture B is test fitting, installation. I had to remove a little material on the top and some on the end. To transfer the existing hole locations I just drew lines to find the center of each hole with a pencil. Installed the new handle and transferred the lines. Painted the handle silver before installation. Picture C, before and after. Time for install abuot 1.5 hour including paint. Thank you 250689

We have a 1967 Ford American LaFrance Firetruck with 7 cargo bins and no latches that lock. Makes it pretty useless for storage space. The locks are a perfect match to the old hardware we took off. The first one installed in less than 5 minutes. The team at etrailer kept us up to date on the order, shipment, delivery, etc., it was a great experience. 744594

Unfortunately, and I am very sad to say, the lock I ordered from you did not fit my Wells Cargo trailer *:( sad. Online, it looked like a perfect fit, but unfortunately in real life there were several things about the new lock I ordered that did not match up to my old one. My old lock is still usable, so I guess I'll have to keep using it. I hate to return things I order, but in this case it is useless to me. I would like to return it in it's original, perfect condition for a refund, but want to make sure I send it appropriately. Will you give me the instructions I need? Again, I am sorry it didn't work out as I had hoped, and I appreciated your kind letter. I would still like to give a good review for you, even though the product didn't work for me. Thank you for trying... Wayne *:( sad 575475

Good latch. Seems to look and work well enough. Unfortunately I was never able to really use it because the bar on the back wasn't long enough to reach the door frame from the latch pocket where the previous latch was installed in my trailer door. But that's my fault, I should have done a little more measuring before buying. 361951

  • Which Replacement Door Latch for 1991 Sooner Trailer
    The easiest way to find a replacement is find the dimensions of the hole that the latch sits it.The Flush Locking Stainless Steel Latch, part # L1833. The latch fits in a 2-3/4 inch by 3-3/4 inch hole and features an inside release. The larger # L3980 you referenced would mount into a 3-3/8 by 4-5/8 inch hole.

  • Replacement Bargman L-300 Locking Latch
    I did some research on the Bargman L-300 lock that you mentioned in your question, and it appears that these have not been made in a long time. Specific replacement parts for this particular line are no longer produced. If you are needing to replace the lock, I recommend looking at a similar design handle lock like the Redline Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch # L3980. This will mount in a 3-3/8 inch x 4-5/8 inch hole and will work on doors up to 1-1/16 inches thick. I have...

    The Bargman L-300 lock is no longer manufactured so a direct replacement lock is not available. The Redline Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch # L3980 that you referenced has a similar handle lock design and should work nicely as a replacement. It will mount in a 3-3/8 inch x 4-5/8 inch hole with one way screws or pop rivets. I recommend taking a quick measurement on your existing mounting hole to see if this will fit right in. Also keep in mind that the handle will work on doors...

    The Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch # L3980 is designed to fit 1-1/16 inch thick doors and mounts in a hole that is 4-5/8 X 3-3/8 inches. If there are no screws visible, then your existing latch is likely welded on, and you will probably have to cut off it off to get started. Be sure to be cautious when removing your old latch, so you don't damage your trailer door in the process. If you're able to send some photos, I can give you a better idea about how to start removing the...

  • Replacement Locking Door Latch for 1994 Wells Cargo Trailer
    I researched circa-1994 Wells Cargo trailers but I could not find any confirmed specs for the particular door latch they used on their various sizes of trailers. Most do use a flush-mount latch like Redline # L3980 and # L1883. You'll need to remove the old latch and measure the opening to find the correct replacement latch. Part # L1883 mounts in an opening that measures 2-5/8 x 3-3/4 and part # L3980 mounts in a hole that measures 3-3/8 x 4-5/8. For the inside knob you can use part...

  • Enclosed Door Latch Recommendation for a 1 inch Thick Door
    Sounds like you are looking for something like the Locking Stainless Steel Flush Door Latch # L3980 as this is the common door latch you see on the side doors of enclosed trailers and can be used on doors that are 1 inch thick like yours.. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. You will also need the # 4PLSP to open the door from inside.

  • How Thick of a Door will the Redline Door Latch L3980 Fit
    You are going to have to measure the thickness of your door. I wish there was a way to determine the thickness of a trailer door by looking at the VIN or elsewhere, but that info isn't something a trailer manufacturer would list somewhere since it's not super relevant for most people. The part # L3980 will fit your door as long as it's up to 1-1/16 inches thick.

  • Recommended Replacement Lock/Latch For Avion Barman L-400 Lock
    The old Bargman L400 series locks you have on the trailer currently haven't been made for a very long time and apparently due to their rarity and how desirable they are people sell them for quite a bit of money when they can find them. I can't help you find those. For a similar handle lock you could use the Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch # L3980. I recommend you consider the "Junior" Locking Stainless Steel Flush Door Latch with Inside Release # L1833 or # PLR5115 to allow...

  • Replacement Locking Door Latch for Tack Room Door on 1997 Circle J Horse Trailer
    I was able to find photos of many styles of older Circle J horse trailers and most do seem to use a flush door lock like # L1833 which fits into a 2-3/4 x 3-3/4-inch hole in a door up to 7/8-inches thick. The lock you referenced, part # L3980, fits a larger 3-3/8 x 4-5/8-inch opening in a door up to 1-1/16-inches thick. All such locks we offer are shown on the linked page. Just measure your door thickness and the dimensions of the lock opening to find the best replacement.

  • Locking T-Handle for an Enclosed Trailer
    I believe the CH751 is the lock number. There are various lock numbers that could be in a door handle. The number you provided is a patent number for a double lock T-handle. Such as # L4080 which is the closest match we have to that design.

  • Is There A Handle on the Inside of the Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch
    The Redline Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch # L3980 does not have an inside handle. I have attached a photo of the back of the latch and a product review video for you. Typically, these types of door latches do not have handles on the inside. If you need a latch that has a handle on the inside you could use a latch like the Global Link RV Entry Door Latch Kit # 295-000019. I have attached a review video of this door latch for you.

  • Locking Door Latch for Concession Trailer Awning Door
    While we don't have any specific parts for an awning latch that locks, the Redline Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch # L3980 should do a good job for your application.

  • Depth of Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch L3980
    I spoke with the manufacturer and they told me the depth of this door latch, product # L3980, from the recessed area to the housing area is 1 inch. The depth from top of the latch to the bottom is 1-3/4 inches. This door latch mounts in 3-3/8 inch x 4-5/8 inch hole. I am sorry, we do not have a diagram of the measurements.

  • Door Latch Recommendation for Small Cargo Trailer
    As long as the doors are less than 1-1/16 inch thick the Latch part # L3980 would be exactly what you would want. These are a smaller latch that have locks built into them that are very reliable. For for a smaller setup we have the Junior Latch part # L1833. This is right at an inch smaller in width and length.

  • Does Trailer Door Latch L3980 Come Keyed Alike
    If you order 4 of the part # L3980 you will get 4 that use the same key. We do not offer a version that is chrome in this size though. We have the part # L1883 which is a "Junior" size at 2-3/4 x 3-3/4 inch hole size. Both of these flush mount locking door latches use the same key number.

  • How Thick Can a Trailer Door Be to Use Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch, # L3980
    Provided that the doors on your trailer can accept the required 3-3/8 inch x 4-5/8 inch hole needed to mount the Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch, # L3980, and that the door are less than 1-1/16 inches thick, you will be able to use this locking door latch.

  • Recommended Hardware to Attach the Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch
    The Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch part # L3980 can be mounted with a variety of different types of hardware. As you mentioned, pop rivets or carriage bolts would be the most secure. You could also use something like the Long Black Torx Wall Liner Screw part # WLS100 as torx bits are more of a speciality tool. The correct bit for this screw is part # TX425. If you have a metal door you could weld it on as well.

  • Can the Redline Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch be Ordered Keyed Alike
    The key code for the Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch # L3980 is random and they don't all have the same code plus there is no option to order them keyed alike. We do have the Global Link RV Entry Door Locking Latch Kit # 295-000002 which comes in polished chrome and the option to order it keyed alike. It isn't the exact same style of door latch but if you are able to modify your application this will work just as great!
