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

wrong part I thought I order a front door latch instead I got a cargo latch not to happy I wanted a latch for the front door on a boundry 1986 motorhome 449234

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

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

Hello I'm very satisfied with my purchase, i installed the new lock handle in place of the side door '"swing lock handle" i'm using the trailer as a camper and by doing this it makes the door more usable and i can enter the trailer more easly with this handle, i took pictures as i installed the new lock handle. Thanks Larry 270710

  • Availability of a Door Latch That Will be Compatible on an 1 Inch Thick Door
  • I found a latch for your enclosed trailer door. The Full Size Lockable Steel Flush Door Latch, # L3980, will mount in a 3-3/8 x 4-5/8 inch hole and will work on doors up to 1-1/16 inches thick.

  • Replacement RV Storage Compartment Door and Entry Door Locks
  • RV manufacturers don't maintain details on smaller items such as the locks they install so you will want to take note of the dimensions of the openings in the 2 storage compartment doors into which the locks mount as well as the type of lock. All of our types of door latches are shown on the linked pages. These include paddle handle flush latches like # PLR5115, T-handle latches like # PLR5710 and full-size flush door latches like # L3980. We also have slam latches like # F708-204P011. We...

Many older pop-ups will have a thinner door than this and the older Rockwood models I found photos of appear to use a paddle-type lock like # L3980 which fits a door opening of 3-3/8 x 4-5/8-inches. I contacted Forest River, which now owns the Rockwood brand. Since your pop-up was made before they bought the brand from Cobra...

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. It doesn't use an inside release, but you can easily add the # 4PLSP knob. Unfortunately, I don't have any reference material that provides any part numbers or manufacturers for...

If this latch cannot fit into your door's mounting hole area, then please take a few measurements of this hole. Find the length, width of the mounting hole and the thickness of the door.

  • Locking Door Latch with Inside Release for a 1 Inch Thick Trailer Door
  • I went out to the warehouse to measure the Junior Locking Stainless Steel Flush Door Latch with Inside Release, # L1833. Your trailer door would have to be no larger than 7/8 inches thick for the latch to fit. Instead, you could use latch # L3980. According to the manufacturer, this latch will fit a 1 inch thick door.

  • Locking Flush Trailer Door Lock Recommendation for a 1 inch Thick Door on a Cargo Trailer
  • I have a solution for you, but the "Junior" Locking Stainless Steel Flush Door Latch with Inside Release # L1833 that you referenced can only fit doors up to 7/8 of an inch in thickness. For your 1 inch thick door you would want the Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch # L3980 instead as this handle works on doors up to 1-1/6 inches thick.

  • 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...

  • Keyed Alike Flush Mount Locking Door Latches
  • I called my contact at Redline, and they told me that they use the same lock and key for their flush mount door latches. So you could order 4 of part # L1883 and they would all be keyed alike. If you need a larger latch, 4 of part # L3980 would also be keyed alike. Both of these flush mount locking door latches use the same key number.

  • How to install Full Size Locking Steel Flush Door Latch on a Trailer
  • 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

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...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Locking Flush Door Latch with Inside Release
  • All the flush mounted latches we offer are pretty similar, with the differences being size of the hole they install in, the way the metal of the latch is finished, and whether they lock or not. To determine which latch you need, the best place to start would be to remove the latch and measure the hole it's mounted in. The 'Junior' latches mount in a 2-3/4 x 3-3/4 inch hole. The full sized latch uses a hole 3-3/8 x 4-5/8. I'm not entirely sure what the 'inside mounting' dimensions...

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

Locking door handle # L1883 requires a 2-5/8 inch by 3-3/4 inch hole. The door thickness can be no greater than 7/8 of an inch thick to use this handle.

  • 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.
