Video Transcript for Redline Enclosed Trailer Parts - Doors - SL716SS Review

Today were going to review part number SL716SS. This is the Redline Bolt On stainless steel spring latch. This enclosed trailer part will feature a stainless steel spring and pin and the base its attached to is an aluminum base. The pin diameter on this is 7/16 of an inch. Just to show you how this operates, theres two retaining pins thatll hold the bolt open. In the open position theres roll pin as you can see right here.

That goes through the bolt so basically when you move this, you can just pull it until this roll pin right here goes past the retaining pins and then turn it and itll hold the latch open. To release it is just turn it until the roll pin disengages the retaining pins and itll close it, spring on release and close it. A few dimensions on this; the total overall length of this piece is going to be 7 inches. The overall height on this is going to be 1 3/8 inches. Dimensions of the base I want to give you, base is going to be about 3 3/8 x 1 .

There are mounting holes drilled in so this can be bolted on. The size of the holes are 3/16 of an inch. Let me give you a measurement from center to center. The long will be 1 7/8 and the short distance will be 1 inch even. Again, just to show you how this would operate is if you would just pull this until the pin goes past the retaining pins and thatll hold it open and to release it is just pull back, turn it and thatll let t close.

That should do it for review on part number SL716SS.

I used the latches on a shed door I rebuilt, installed them and love the way they work and secure the door. The quality of these latches are excellent and know they will hold up to the weather conditions they will partially endure.

Still working fine and love the way they work. Was perfect for the door application I have!


Extremely satisfied with the spring latches. Very well made and with materials that won't rust. I would strongly recommend your stainless latches over any other cheaper made ones.

Greg S.


Your product is working flawlessly. One year later and no problems with no rust which is one of the reasons I purchased your latches. Im extremely pleased with the product and would purchase again or recommend them to anyone else.


This latch was exactly what I needed to make a tailgate on my trailer rebuild. Stainless steel & aluminum construction won't rust & it works great with the aluminum plate I made to take the bolt. No rattles. I would highly recommend it for your project.
Only con: The rubber nipple comes off, so I just threw it away. Not needed

Jere W.


Still working great.


Great product. These were the perfect part I needed for a recent tailgate project. The aluminum base allowed me to weld directly to the tailgate, and with stainless pins, no worries of corrosion. Definitely will order again.


Well built. Used for a custom trailer tailgate latch. Would have been better if the frame was stainless, but it works great.



After a year, still like brand new.


this is the best latch i could find anywhere and stainless steel/aluminum to boot. It is also cheaper than the zinc steel rust pins you'll find on auction and marine supply sites etc. The product video was very helpful as it showed all sides of the item and measurements. I used two for tailgate latches and i couldn't have been happier with the results. This is a quality item for an outstanding price.
This is two very good results from orders to etrailer.Previous was for light lenses and perfect and half the price of competitors.


These latches work great and ETrailer has great customer service. They were prompt in shipping and you can't beat the price, I'm using the latches on my landscape leaf vac trailer for a removable rear retaining wall. These latches are just what we needed to make moving it out of the way for unloading possible.


My specific use was not for a trailer, but for a dog cage that I built. The picture I attached shows the latch slightly modified only in height. I had to run the mounting bracket through a table saw so it fit better on the 1" square tube. The aluminum base was perfect in my case so that I could weld the bracket to the cage door. For reference, the cage is 6061 and the latch bracket welded just fine. Anyways, the latch itself has held up perfectly and is as solid as the day I bought it. I would absolutely recommend this latch for a trailer or whatever other project you have.

1 year update: no change to my original review. The latch is functioning great. I would absolutely buy another one and would recommend it as well.


The product is intended to be a replacement for a broken landscape trailer tailgate latch. I searched several sites for the latch and was disappointed not to be able to find a suitable replacement. Went to the Etrailer site and was able to find the subject part quickly.

Appears to be quite sturdy but time and typical use will tell the whole story. Iam pleased to report I have found a great site for all of my future trailer parts needs. Thanks Etrailer!


Love love love this! My husband and I made a custom divider and this little latch was perfect.


Works very well to stop products temporarily on a gravity fed roller conveyor.


I ordered the spring trailer latch for my 6 x 8 trailer to replace a broken one. The web site was easy to use and it arrived at my home in four days. I am completely satisfied, the quality is good and I like that it is stainless steel.

The stainless steel bolt on latch is working fine and still looks like new.


This is a well constructed latch. Was used on one of my shed barn doors at the bottom and latches it thru my shed ramp to hold the door tight when closed. Worked great. Being stainless steel it should last forever.



Working perfectly like it did the day it was installed


I got this product very fast. It is perfect for my use. I used it, not for it's intended purpose, but as a latch for a secret bookcase door! Easy to install and easy to use. Thanks. OBTW Great web site.

Product was exactly what it was supposed to be very happy with them only thing that could be changed is to have the bolt holes a standard size I had to drill out the holes to fit a 1/4 inch bolt


This product is of good quality but one thing to note is that the main frame that holds the pin and spring is aluminum and not stainless steel. So it should not rust but the caveat is that you cannot weld it onto the typical steel frame of what it is being mounted on, you will need to drill and bolt it to that surface.

My scenario is a utility trailer where the back end (tail gate that folds down) is all steel so no welding is possible. You cannot weld aluminum to steel. Why they designed it that way I am not sure.

Also the diameter of the rotating pin is smaller than what I am replacing. (was 1/2" now 3/8") No big deal but rattles a bit more. The installer welded on a flat washer to close the gap.


Latch installed with no problems , used them to hold a 5ft aluminum primary flap closed on an enlclosed car trailer . Trailer is used for low clearance vehicles. My only issue is I paid for 3 day shipping , I ordered online Sunday 6-25-2017 received Friday 6-30-2017. The latest they should of come was Thursday 6-29-2017 , I just made my deadline which was Saturday . Again the latch worked excellent for my application.


Came quickly and matched our existing on our landscape trailer. Were able to use the pin and spring only on our existing bracket as it was welded on and the pins and springs were the bad part on our trailer. Use caution when removing the taper pin as to not round it off with a hammer and is an easy fix.


I am building a trailer ramp and going to use these as my latches. The order came in quickly and for the price these are very high quality and very durable. Only thing is the case is aluminum and wished it was steel so I could weld them on but no big deal I will bolt them on a bracket.


Nice heavy, beefy latch. I am using it for my snowmobile trailer side door since it only has an outside lock but want to keep the cold out.


I bought this latch to hold the tilt deck of my snowmobile trailer. Quality of the latch was much better then expected for the price! Shipping was on time and I received email updates when it arrived. Very impressed and would order from etrailer again!


Exact replacement for my trailer ramp latch. Looks great and works great


Heavy Duty Spring Latch works perfectly and secures rear trailer door for other door to lock to. Very happy with performance and quality.


This robust (heavy duty) SS Spring Latch assembly is well constructed without concern for breakage. Simple and fuctional!

The spring latch will be utilized for a travel trailer application, ensuring the tool box lid remains closed during travel.


I replaced a broken latch. The replacement latch from has held up with no failure. I recommend this part to replace a broken.
