Expert Answers about Trailer Door Latch


  • Door Locks for 2014 24ft Husky Cargo Trailer
  • The Global Link Vise Lock you'd mentioned, part # 295-000024 would be a good addition, but it would only replace the puck-style lock you'd used. You'll still need to replace the latch kit with something like part # PLR658-SSP. From your photos, it looks like they took a cut-off wheel to the latch handle. Replacing your existing setup would leave the trailer doors similarly vulnerable. I believe the best solution would be to use a layered approach secure the trailer to prevent or...

  • How to Choose Replacement Latch for Tack Room
  • We likely have an option for you to replace your trailer's tack room lock, but there are no specific replacement parts for your trailer, and we don't have a way of looking anything up, so the best we can do is offer you a way to choose your replacement. To do you just need to know the style of your lock, as well as the measurements. For example, if it is a paddle lock, and has a cut out dimension of 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" then you would be able to use the Bauer Products Manger Door Lock for...

  • 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.

  • Do The Bauer Products Locking Cam Latch # BA32FR & Global Link # 295-000024 Share Mounting Patterns?
  • The mounting holes for the Bauer Products Locking Cam Latch # BA32FR are spread 2-13/16" horizontally for the top 2 holes and 3-3/4" from the center line of the top holes to the center of the bottom hole(see image). The mounting holes for the Global Link Vise Lock # 295-000024 are spread 2-13/16" horizontally for the top 2 holes and 3-5/8" from the center line of the top holes to the center of the bottom hole(see image).

  • Keyed Alike Option for Cam Latches on Horse Trailers
  • I have a solution for you, but the Bauer Products Locking Cam Latch for Horse Trailers, # BA32FR does not have a keyed alike option. I recommend the Global Link Vise Lock for Cam-Action Door Latches, # 295-000024 that does provide the keyed alike option. This is an aluminum construction with a black powder coat finish and can be keyed alike to match other Global Link locks too, not just matching cam locks. So if you have other locks on your trailer aside from the cam locks, please consider...

  • Will Old Bauer Products Locking Cam Latch Key Match Lock on New Latch
  • The Bauer Products Locking Cam Latch for Horse Trailers # BA32FR uses different keys between the latches. This means that your old key would not work on the new latch. The latch does use AE series keys like the AE024 you currently have, so I suppose it is possible it could match but that would be random chance. If you would like a similar style latch that comes with 2 keys instead of one so you have a spare I recommend checking out the # 295-000024. This can also have a keyed alike option...

  • Avion Argonaut 1969 Screen Door Latch Replacement
  • Screen door latches are easy to replace. You will simply need the Bi-Directional Screen Door Latch # 37206-11865 or the Bullet Door Latch for RV Screen Door # 37210785. The access to the latch on the ouside is not covered and from the inside you simply slide the bubble cover to the side to access the handle and then return it to cover the handle and keep bugs out.

  • How To Choose the Correct Length Bar for the Cam-Action Lockable Door Latch
  • In regards to Cam-Action Lockable Door Latches like part # 305736, the longer bar you have for the cam lock, the more support it will offer. If you have a heavy, tall door then you'd want to consider looking into a longer bar whereas if you have a smaller, lighter door then you can use a shorter bar. That said, I don't have any formula to use for this, it's up to the installer's discretion. If you need one longer than 36" then you can get part # PLR3057 and choose your own bar size.

  • How To Find Correct Replacement Door Latch for Featherlight Horse Trailer
  • In order to find a suitable replacement latch for your horse trailer you need to remove the old latch and measure the cutout as that's then going to tell you a compatible replacement. The Bauer Products Manger Door Lock for Horse Trailers part # BA55FR is possibly a solution. It fits a cutout of 2-3/4" wide x 3-3/4" tall. It's unlikely you'll find an exact match so you may very well need to modify the opening to make a latch work. I have attached a full list of our other entry door latches...

  • Can Bauer Products Manager Door Lock BA55FR Be Ordered With A Specific Key Code?
  • I have another option for you, but the Bauer Products Manger Door Lock for Horse Trailers - Matte Black - Zinc - Left Hand # BA55FR you were looking at cannot be ordered with a specific key code. To get multiple locks with the same code you would need to order each product at the same time, with the keyed alike option selected on each product and making sure they are the same brand.

  • How are Spacers Used When Installing Cam-Action Lockable Door Latch Kit # PLR458-018
  • I attached a picture that shows the spacers lined up on the cam door latch # PLR458-018 to show you where they install. They basically install in between the top and bottom bar clamps and the latch system on top. This is designed to prevent the bar from sliding down when it's not latched. I've used these before and they have a tendency to slip down if they don't have the spacers holding them in place.

  • I reached out to my contact at Global Link and the Global Link Vise Lock for Cam-Action Door Latch - Keyed Alike Option - Black # 295-000024 you were looking at is made out of aluminum, not steel. The reason the black version # 295-000024 is more expensive than the white # 295-000026 or silver # 295-000025 is due to the popularity of the black version. Since significantly less people or purchasing the other two colors, that makes their price go down. I included a video of the # 295-000024...

  • Is Installing the Cam-Action Lockable Door Latch Kit Easy
  • Installation of the Cam-Action Lockable Door Latch Kit w/ Narrow Hasp for Small Enclosed Trailers # 383200 is generally regarded as pretty easy, but unfortunately the manufacturer makes no instructions available for this kit for some reason. However, all you need is a pipe with a 3/4" inside diameter and the handle and cam ends will need to be welded to the pipe; the rest of the application gets bolted on.

  • Is There a Required Handle Thickness for the Stainless Steel Hasp PLR158-102-SS

  • How Thick of a Door will the Redline Door Latch L3980 Fit
  • You are going to have to measure the thickness of your door. I wish there was a way to determine the thickness of a trailer door by looking at the VIN or elsewhere, but that info isn't something a trailer manufacturer would list somewhere since it's not super relevant for most people. The part # L3980 will fit your door as long as it's up to 1-1/16 inches thick.
