Exactly what I was looking for and very well built. Looks strong. Using it on the back of a dump trailer that has a broken latch on two swing open doors. Manufacturer wanted $2100 for two new doors because the latch broke.

Great service. Staff was easy to work with and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them.




by:

I bought this set to replace the worn and bent latches on my recycling truck. The package arrived quickly and contained everything as ordered. I was actually pleasantly surprised that this set is much heavier duty than I was expecting, and much better quality than the set I originally built the truck with (sourced locally). This is a very nice quality set that will last years longer than my existing door latches. Thanks eTrailer!




by:

Just what I needed for my trailer build.




by:

I’m very pleased with the product. The latch looks like it will serve us well. I was a little apprehensive weather it would work on a livestock trailer. I believe it will work just fine. Thank you e-trailer.

  • Are There Dimensions Required for Use when Installing the Polar Cam Action Door Lock # PLR258-002
    When you install the Polar Heavy Duty Cam Action Door Lock # PLR258-002 You basically will want to mock it up on the trailer in the position you need it and then mark those locations so that when you permanently mount everything it all fits together well. If you are asking about the appropriate distance between the cams at the bottom of the pole and the pipe mounting brackets that really just depends on the setup. There isn't an exact distance required there. But I would try to get it as...

  • Replacement Hasp for Polar Cam-Action Latch Kit
    Replacement Hasp # PLR258-101 can be used as a stand alone item but it is a replacement for the hasp that comes with Cam-Action Lockable Door Latch Kit # PLR258-002. It does not sound like what you are looking for though. To determine if we have what you are looking for I would need to see it. If you can please email me a picture.

  • Replacement Latches for 2002 Platinum LQ Horse Trailer
    We may have a solution for you though we do not have parts specific to trailers so you would need to find something compatible with your current latches. The Cam-Action Lockable Door Latch Kit w/ Wide Hasp # PLR258-002 may be an option, as could side door lock # PLR3057. I will link our selection of available door hardware for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Side Door Latch For An Older Haulmark Enclosed Trailer
    We have a few options available for side door latches and one that I like is the Polar Hardware Cam-Action Lockable Door Latch w/ 36" Pipe # 305736. The shorter pipe makes this ideal for side doors as it isn't quite as large and bulky as options for rear doors. This may not be an exact replacement for your Haulmark trailer, but it definitely a good option.

  • Tips for Installing Trailer Cam Door Style Latch on Trailer With Door that Isn't Flush
    To use a cam door style trailer latch on a trailer door that sticks out 1 inch past surface you'd want to use a spacer behind the latch mechanisms that attach on the door. I'd also go with a setup like the part # PLR258-002-SS which allows you to provide your own bar. You could attach the latch on top of the bar so that you get more offset as well.

  • Cam Style Trailer Door Latch Recommendation For Limited Clearance Area for Brackets
    The big difference between the Cam Door Latch # PLR458-018 and the # PLR658-002 is the robustness of the pipe mount on the handle side. The # PLR658-002 is more for heavy duty applications and comes with bushings for the pipe to mount in. This requires a 1-5/16 inch diameter pipe and the other requires 3/4 inch diameter. That said, since you said you only have a space of 2-7/16 inches for the bottom bracket to fit you'd actually want the part # PLR258-002 instead as it has a smaller sized...

  • Availability of Stainless Steel Trailer Side-Door Bar Lock Assembly
    The Polar 55-Inch Side-Door Bar Lock Assembly # 3057-55 features galvanized steel construction but they do offer a universal kit with stainless steel components, part # PLR158-SS. This kit does NOT include the 3/4-inch diameter pipe so that one part you will source locally. Since you provide the pipe you can control the exact size of the lock set-up to best fit your trailer door. Polar also offers a heavy-duty version # PLR258-002-SS which is designed for flush to 3/4-inch-offset doors....
