Paneloc Door Hardware - Heavy Duty Spring Latch - 788-S-ZINC Review

Ellen: Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at Today we're taking a look at the Panel Lock Heavy Duty Spring Latch. Now, this is going to help you keep any kind of trailer gates, ramps and other heavy-duty doors closed, and it's just going to be this nice heavy-duty latch to keep those in place, so as your door rests against that. It's going to keep it in place until you pull that pin, and then we'll let it release.It does have this sort of beveled edge here to make it easier to guide that into a keeper, so you don't have to have it exactly lined up and it'll spring back into place. The spring does have a pretty nice action, so it'll fall into place without too much effort.

It does have an offset body design to give you a little bit more flexibility with application in tight spots.As far as the size for this, that's mostly what I'm going to go over with you guys. It's going to be about 3" long for the bracket, and about 4" wide. Flip this over. You can actually see it there for about 4" wide. The total length of that pin is about 5 7/8" long.

From the top of the bracket to our pin, it's about 1 3/8". The extension coming down here is going to be about 1 5/8". The total travel of this is going to be about 1 1/4", so as you pull that up it does move up another 1 1/4". Front to back, the bracket is about 2", maybe like 1 7/8" long. Both our pin swiveled forward, that's going to be about 3 3/8".

The pin diameter is going to be 7/8". Our mounting holes are each going to be 3/8" in diameter. The distance between them center to center is about 2 7/8" by about 1". It does have a zinc-plated coating over that steel construction, so it's going to give us good durability and corrosion resistance as well.That's pretty much going to do it for our look at the Panel Lock Heavy Duty Spring Latch. If you need any other accessories for your trailer, you can always turn to for any of those needs.

Thanks for watching.
