Video Transcript for Paneloc Heavy Duty Spring Latch Review

Hi, neighbor. This is Brad at etrailer and today we're looking at the Paneloc Heavy Duty Spring Latch system that is zinc coated. For those looking for added protection, we also have a stainless steel option. So if you have a trailer that you use on a regular basis, a lot of times we're not so fortunate to be able to store it inside so it sits outside in the elements, which in turn can cause corrosion, as you see. Same with the hardware. A product is only as good as its hardware sometimes, and honestly, the hardware can make a difference of ease of loading or just the overall feel of the quality of a trailer.

Something else you might consider needing new hardware would be adding your own attachments to the back for repurposing a trailer for something. In this case, loading a golf cart. So this bracket itself, pretty simple, two mounting holes. You have a compression pin here that acts as a lock. If you've ever loaded a trailer by yourself, it can get kinda tricky.

A lot of your attachments can get heavy, so you catch yourself in a position while you're trying to put it up. If the pins are down, you're having to do the dance in between 'em. So something cool with that locking system is you can do one at a time, drop down. Same thing. You can load your golf cart, in this instance.

Put this up. I can walk over here, take my time, and boom, one-person system. So something to take in consideration with this kit and something that you'll have to have some forethought before putting it on is, it does not come with hardware. So what we're using since we have a 5/16 hole is a 5/16 bolt, roughly about an inch long. Depending on your situation, your bracket, metal, it could change.

The 5/16 hole, we're gonna put this through. And here we have a flat washer and a nylon locking nut. Nylons are good, especially on a trailer that has a lot of vibration. You don't want that working out and all of a sudden your hitch pin coming out. So we'll get this tightened up. You're gonna need to find a bracket or fabricate your own bracket for your needs if your trailer doesn't have one, so make sure you match the 1/2 inch hole, maybe a little larger. Something that's nice about this pin, as you can see, it's tapered in so you don't have to have a direct shot in, so it should make for an easy drop in. Something else. This construction, it is steel. It is zinc coated. Zinc coating helps protect it from the elements for a pretty long time. It does a great job. So something to think about when you're buying these for your trailer would be left hand or right hand so these mirror each other, so obviously one side will go to the other. But the way to determine that, if you look at the front face of it, see where the pin is It's on the right and that's your right-hand side. This is the opposite side, so as you can see looking at the front, it's on the left. So the product itself has very good feel to it. As you can see, spring deck is good. A little squeaking, but nothing terrible. You may have some binding issues but part of that could be your hole not big enough, your alignment off, so really making sure when you fabricate it on your trailer, you do a good job to square it up. So that's a look at our Paneloc Heavy Duty Spring Latch with Hold Back. So, if you are fabricating your own trailer as this is, or you just want a refresh on the hardware on your existing trailer, having a nice new touch point for something that you use a lot and not having a latch hang up while trying to load is something that's totally worth it. Thanks for watching..

Not what I ordered. One latch is 4” and the other is 6”. Please have someone call me for a return. 2 previous orders didn’t have the hardware and now this. I’m sorry but I’m through ordering form you guys.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

Product received as described and worked perfectly in our application. We are using it to secure a solar panel that is mounted under a roof rack using stainless steel drawer slides.


Product shipped within hours of placing the order. It arrived as expected. No issues.


They work alright


Heavy duty, smooth precision action with no slop. Just what I was looking for. Made hood latches with them.


Product is great. Stainless steel. The chiseled end goes into the keeper even if it is a little misaligned. Spring is the right tension.

I used wood screws to hold it to the bottom of my boat seats to keep them from flying out during trailering. Worked great.

Unfortunately the wood screws kept coming out of the wood. I need a through bolt, but didn't want to disassemble the seat,


Didn't use it on a trailer. I mounted it on my lawn mower plow blade to set the angle. Works great! Made it much fastest/easier to change the blade angle.


They sure look nice & etrailer service is pretty darn good to boot.


Competitive pricing on a top quality product. Shipping was fast and the tracking tool was a nice addition and accurate. This stainless pin latch will be a great addition to my stock trailer!


Excellent and fast


Very responsive and shipping was in a timely fashion.


Very nice spring pin! Product I received is just what is pictured. High quality, thick stainless steel. Using it to keep the left rear door closed on one of our cargo trailers, works great.


Very well made part. Stout with a spring just strong enough to do the job and it doesn't take a set when you fully compress it. It has been de-burred very well so no sharp edges to cut you.


Well made and fast delivery!


I used it to latch a table on a boat. I know it's not the intended purpose, but it worked really well.


The website provided an excellent resource to review different items and decide what to order. Ordering was simple and my order arrived as promised. Very pleased with my overall experience. Definitely will order again in the future.


Arrived early and works great !!
