Review of Polar Hardware Enclosed Trailer Parts PLR258-002


Today we're gonna be taking a look at the polar hardware heavy duty cam action door lock for enclosed trailers. This unit allows you to add - or replace an old or damaged - cam action door lock on your trailer. I do have it laid out in the way that it would install typically. The unit is made from a strong, durable steel construction. It is designed for flush to three-quarter inch off-set doors and is universal for the right or left hand doors. It can be used for side or rear door applications.

It does feature a bridge-type keeper that prevents accidental opening and ensures safe-locking action. The handle on the unit - this is going to measure about thirteen and three quarters of an inch long. Really nice thick steel construction. And, it's got a coated end on it right here, which gives the unit a really nice, easy grip - easy to handle design. Now this handle is designed to weld onto the pipe, so that really helps eliminate the need to have to cut the pipe. Your pipe is not included. This calls for a standard three-quarter inch inner diameter pipe, which will need to be provided separately or on your own.

When it comes to the extension from the trailer body for this unit, we're looking at one and three quarters of an inch extension. The islet right here - this is called the padlock or seal-eye - that gives us a diameter of a half inch. The keeper, that's gonna give us a width measurement around two inches and there's a mount located right here and a mount hole located right here. Now, all the holes on this unit will accept three eighth inch diameter hardware. Now any hardware is not included so that will need to be provided separately, as well. Padlock is not included either, so if you're interested in something like that you can check out some options at etrailer.com.

That length of that keeper bracket is gonna be about five to five and one-eighth of an inch long. A few other things that I wanna mention for you real quick is just the mount hole separation. So we have our keepers right here, these are really nice as well. Nice narrow design, which makes them great for using on a rear door or on a side door of your enclosed trailer. Then you got the pieces that connect to the top and bottom of the pipe.

But, I just wanna give you the mount hole separation on these and then I'll give you the mount hole separation on the other brackets that come with it that go around the pipe. So, center on center, the distance between our holes, we're looking at four and three-quarters of an inch. And then, center on center, the distance between these mount holes: these are gonna be separated on center by about three and one-eighth of an inch. That's gonna do it for today's look at the polar hardware heavy duty cam action door lock for enclosed trailers.
