Video Transcript for Review of Polar Hardware Trailer Door Latch - Paddle Handle Locking Latch - PLR5115

Michael: Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at the pedal handle locking latch. This is going to keep your door or panel closed. It's very easy to operate. It's spring loaded.

That latch is always going to rest in the closed position. This will lock with the included key to make sure that you can't open that latch. Turn this around, you can see we also have a release knob here that's going to allow us to open the latch from the inside. So, if we're using this on a door, we can easily open that up, or if it's under the compartment, good safety measure to make sure that if someone we're to get caught in that compartment, they could open it up from the inside. They wouldn't be stuck in there.This is a nice sturdy zinc plated steel construction.

So, it's going to be very durable and resist corrosion. I'll just give you a little bit of the backside view here. As I'm opening this up, you can see that our keeper is being retracted. And then when I turn the key to lock it in place, that's going to prevent our latch from opening up. And if I move that, it allows us to bring it up again from either the inside or the outside.Now, the important thing to know for any locking latch like this, it's going to be the dimensions.

So, this is going to have an overall length right about five-and-a-half inches. Overall width, you can call it at about four-and-a-quarter. Our cut out dimensions, we're going to be looking at right about four-and-five-eighths, just over four-and-a-half inches for our cutout. And then our cutout width, we're going to be right about three-and-three-eighths of an inch.Overall, I think this is going to be a great option for those of you who are needing to either add a latch or replace a current one. I think this is going to hold up well for you and be very strong, durable, and to help to make sure that your compartment not only stays closed, but also can be locked so you can keep all your valuables inside without having to worry about anyone getting to them.

So, that's going to complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.

After I realized this would not work for the application, I previously bought it for and a few emails with Samantha B. the item was to be returned for a shipping charge for $[XX] when item was purchased I only payed $[XX] for shipping. So I think this is a bit of a price gouging on the return. I will make sure this gets on social medial too. and not longer will I look at any product on this website.

The product was as described and works as I expected.

I used for latches on doors I made for my utv and they have been working fine
Edward - 11/19/2022


by:

These were exactly what i was looking for. They are heavy duty and work great! I used them on tool drawers in the bed of my truck. They are raw metal so can rust is not finished.




by:

Installation was quick and easy. Really happy with the result.




by:

I used this to replace a bar and latch on my cargo trailer to make the door more like an RV door... This required some custom work but I am very happy with it.

The latch is lockable from the outside but can still be opened from the inside when locked; a good safety feature.




by:

Exactly what I needed and worked out be autifully!!




by:

This item was an exact replacement for the entry latch on my Tuff Shed barn. The original latch lasted about 15 years and so far this one has been an excellent replacement.

by:

Always a pleasure to purchase from etrailer.com the follow up is prompt and your components are accurately pictured and described excellent quality and value. My go to for horse, boat, and travel trailer repairs and up grades.Thank you.




by:

It appears to me that this handle is better quality and and more durable than the original equipment

The service and response to questions from etrailer was excellent!!




by:

While the product appears to be well constructed, it does not fit my application, I would recommend you add dimensions to your website brochure to possibly reduce this type of problem in the future. I have sent a request for return to your customer service department.


Comments
On the product description page, we list that the overall dimensions of the latch is 5-12 long x 4-14 inches wide and that it fits a rough opening 4-58 long x 3-38 inches wide.

  • Replacement Paddle Style Handle for a Wells Cargo Trailer
    As you have come to find out, the paddle style handle you have on your Wells Cargo Trailer is very large and they just don't make anything that large to replace this nowadays. The largest paddle style handle we have is the Paddle Handle Locking Latch w/ Release part # PLR5115 which installs in a 4-5/8" long x 3-3/8" tall cutout and is made of metal so it wont break. Therefore, in order to make this work for you, you would need to fill in the remaining space but aside from this I just don't...

  • Polar Paddle Handle Locking Latch with Release Installation
    The Paddle Handle Locking Latch w/ Release - 5-1/2" Long x 4-1/4" Wide - Steel # PLR5115 does not have holes drilled for installation. You would need to drill them for this particular handle. The latch will extend approximately 1/2 inch past the outer mounting flange to latch and is 3/4 inches tall. The suggested cutout from the manufacturer is 3-3/8 tall by 4-5/8 wide.

    We do not have a direct replacement for the size latch you have on your trailer. The Paddle Handle Locking Latch w/ Release - 5-1/2" Long x 4-1/4" Wide - Steel # PLR5115 for a 4-5/8" long x 3-3/8" cutout is the largest latch we carry.

In order to make this latch work for you, you would need to fill in part of the opening until there is a place for the flange on the Paddle Handle Locking Latch w/ Release to grab onto. Unfortunately, this will be the only option we have for you as we do not have any paddle latches...

  • How to Remove Broken Paddle Handle Lock on Shed
    Before trying to remove the lock itself I do just recommend trying to apply some spray lubricant like WD-40 inside the lock cylinder, letting it sit, and trying the key again. You might even do this a few times. It could be as simple as some built-up corrosion or debris inside the mechanism that just needs to be loosened up. If this doesn't work then you will need to try and remove the latch itself. After removing the mounting screws you should hopefully be able to angle the paddle lock...

  • How To Measure For Replacement Door Latch
    The measure that is really important when choosing latches is the cut out measurement. If the cut outs on your truck are 5-1/4" x 6-1/2" for the latch then we do not carry a fit because Paddle Handle Locking Latch w/ Release part # PLR5115 is the latch with the largest cut out available at 4-5/8" long x 3-3/8". If you take off one of the latches and measure the cut out then you can compare that measurement with the latches we have available which I have attached below. Most of our parts...

  • Locating Replacement Latch Locks for 1995 Kingston Two Horse Trailer
    It's a little hard to see exactly what kind of lock your Kingston Horse Trailer is equipped with on the picture but from what I can tell it looks awfully similar to a flush-style latch like the Paddle Handle Locking Latch # PLR5115. Unfortunately trailer manufacturers don't typically do a good job of keeping track of information like this (or sharing it if they do) so I'm not able to verify an exact replacement based on the trailer model. Your best bet will be to take a few measurements...

    From your photos I can see that the face of the latch is 5-1/8" x 5-1/8". The closest option we carry to a paddle handle locking latch this size, is the part # PLR5115. It measures 5-1/2" long x 4-1/4" wide and requires a 4-5/8" long x 3-3/8" cut out. Since I am not sure what size cut out you have this may work for you but you would need to measure the existing cut out to be sure.

Therefore, you'd need to enlarge the cutout but the latch would still work just fine.

  • Does Paddle Handle Locking Latch # PLR5115 Require Gasket or Come with Holes Drilled
    The Paddle Handle Locking Latch # PLR5115 does not come with a gasket. You'd want to use a sealant between the flange and the body of the door to prevent water from getting it. It also does not have any holes drilled in the flange which allows you to decide the best place to put them for your application. You could use a silicone sealant like part # 0160297 as well if you wanted.
