SportRack Replacement Parts - Roof Box Latch Clamp - 03347 Review


Today we'll be taking a quick look at the replacement latch for SportRider Explorer Cargo Box. Now, this can also fit a couple different cargo box styles including the Karrite Cargo Carrier #7251, and the Sears X Cargo Box, but we've also had customers tell us that this fits some of the other boxes out there, from either the early aughts or 90's, so it seems to be a pretty universal size. It's just a plastic latch that's going to replace a broken or missing one on your cargo box, help to keep all your items inside, keep the rain and dust out of your box as much as possible.So, I'm going to go over some measurements with you, just so can get an idea of how big this is, to see if it will fit your box, even if it's not one of those other names we have listed here.So, as far as the total length of this portion of the handle, it's about four inches long. We look at just the total length there. The opening on that top hook is.. let me figure out a away that you can actually see this while I measure it.

It's about 3/8 of an inch wide, so just under half an inch of space there. So, as long as the lip that this is attaching on to, is at or less than 3/8 of an inch, should be good there.From this first mounting hole, to the top of that lip, just to give you a reference point, it's about 2 1/4 inches of space there, or really about 2 1/2 inches. Just to let you know where the mounting point would be, and then how much it's going to clamp down. Whenever it's fully opened, it's about 2 1/2 inches wide. So that's the space going out.The little mounting bracket where you'd actually put in your hardware, that measures about 1 3/4 inches long, or just under that, at about 11/16, 1 11/16.

It's about 5/8, excuse me, it's about 3/4 of an inch, or again about 11/16 of an inch wide. The distance between those two mounting holes is about 5/8, and the diameter on those holes is about 3/16.So, just a few measurements to give you an idea of how big this is. The widest point of that latch, at the bottom there, is about an inch and a quarter. If we have it all folded up, it looks like that, and it's going to pivot out and up, like that, so it will just latch down onto your cargo box.so, pretty easy solution to fix that cargo box. It doesn't come with any hardware, so you will have to pick up some screws on your own.

We also have some other replacement parts available here at etrailer.com for that SportRack Explorer Cargo Box, including the spring hinge, which would be that portion that goes on the side that provides the spring for the opening and closing of the box. You can check that out here at etailer.com, using part number SR03810. That's going to do it for our look at the replacement latch for SportRack Explorer Cargo Box.
