Great product, just wished it came with instructions. No instructions where ever received, noting on the original manufactures website. So you guess, tack weld, fit into place, and check operation. Took more time than needed due to lack of instructions.

other than the instructions, This product is extreme heavy duty, and will last a lifetime of a trailer. The galvanizing is thick so corrosion is not something that will be an issue during its lifetime.

For my application I preloaded the welded assemblies with a door seal. Where the compression was 1/2 total thickness around the whole door. Works great and due to the length of Turning Arm it is a breeze for even the weakest person.

Another option I would like with this product is an Un-Coated version so it could be painted easier. With my application, I painted over the Galvanizing with the knowledge that the paint will chip off. But hey, a can of Rust-oleum is cheap and application is easy.

Note: these latches only work from the outside of the trailer. If you need to active, deactivate this latch from inside, then this one is not for you application.

Worked great to build a new door and replace an old rotten roll up door on a box truck

The bar door hinge and lock is still performing great on our cow trailer!



by:

Used these latch kits on a couple old dry van trailers that needed new swing doors and they worked great! Unfortunately the lugs and keepers aren't the universal across all dry van trailers, so I had to grind off the old keepers on one of the trailers rather than just being able to reuse them. Would be awesome if you offered options to this kit with different lug variations



by:

The cam latches where a great addition to my project.

I have not yet opend the package, but I can tell you about the person I visited with when I ordered. She did an excellent job researching what I wanted. She was polite and easy to communicate with. She did not make me feel stupid when it was obvious I did not know what I wanted or needed. She helped me work through that process. I thank her for her help.

  • Does Cam Action Latch Kit PLR658-002 Come with Washers/Spacers
    The spacers/washers that are in the review video for the Cam-Action Lockable Door Latch Kit for Large Enclosed Trailers # PLR658-002 actually aren't included in the kit anymore so what you have now isn't missing anything. This type of latch does allow the bar to slide a bit up and down in the mounts so there is no need for anything to prevent that.

  • Tips for Installing Cam-Action Lockable Door Latch Kit for Large Enclosed Trailers # PLR658-002
    Mock up the install of the # PLR658-002 and it'll become obvious which way to orientate the system. Trying to match the LH and the RH won't be as helpful as mocking everything up and test fitting it before installing it. Basically you'll weld the pipe to the handle and the keepers like you mentioned and then bolt on everything else to the door. There aren't install instructions available for this.

  • How Does the Pipe Attach to the Cam Lock Assembly on Polar 658-002?
    According to the manufacturer the pipe is the 1 inch schedule 40 pipe which means the inner diameter is 1 inch and the outer diameter is 1-5/16" so the attached video and the video are correct. I have also attached a photo from the manufacturer to show you the locations of the Anti-Rack Ring you requested. They will be located just under the top bearing bracket and just above the bottom bearing bracket. You will weld these rings to the pipe as well as the cams at each end and the handle....

  • Height of Upper and Lower Cam Brackets of Polar Cam Action Door Latch Kit # PLR658-002
    The height of the Polar Cam Action Door Latch Kit # PLR658-002 brackets you referenced is 2 inches so you'd need 2 inches basically above and below the door for the brackets to fit.

  • Can Shims be Used to Install Cam-Action Lockable Door Latch Kit so it Sits Flush
    The great thing about the Cam-Action Lockable Door Latch Kit # PLR658-002 is that since it's a universal application you can definitely use shims for the cams so that everything is lined up correctly. When it comes to the strength of these, they are designed for large enclosed trailers which means they will definitely be up to the task of holding your doors in place, but they aren't really rated for a specific weight so I'm not sure how they would hold up to a horse leaning up against...

  • Replacement Door Handle For a 2002 Collin-Arndt Two Horse Bumper Pull Trailer
    I contacted my tech contact at Polar and he told me the closest replacement handle to yours is the Polar Replacement Steel Handle for Cam Door Lock # 158-100. This handle will fit on your lock and is almost the same handle, but the handle lug is slightly larger. However, he did confirm this will fit on your 2002 Collin-Arndt Two Horse Bumper Pull Trailer. I attached a review video of this handle you may want to check out.

  • Cam Style Trailer Door Latch Recommendation For Limited Clearance Area for Brackets
    The big difference between the Cam Door Latch # PLR458-018 and the # PLR658-002 is the robustness of the pipe mount on the handle side. The # PLR658-002 is more for heavy duty applications and comes with bushings for the pipe to mount in. This requires a 1-5/16 inch diameter pipe and the other requires 3/4 inch diameter. That said, since you said you only have a space of 2-7/16 inches for the bottom bracket to fit you'd actually want the part # PLR258-002 instead as it has a smaller sized...
