Recommended Locking Cargo Door Slam Latch For A 7/8" Thick Cargo Door


I have compartment doors with cam locks. I plan to cut a hole in the middle of door for a locking slam latch and replace the cam lock with a twist lock. The wall and door are 7/8inch thick. What is the offset distance from the outside face of wall surface of this latch to the inside of the latch plunger? I just want to know if I need to make spacers for the door and latch to the wall. Thank you in advance for your reply.


Helpful Expert Reply:

The space between the housing of the latch and the face of the handle is only 1/2" so the Bauer Products RV Baggage Door Slam Latch # BA57FR isn't going to be a good fit for your 7/8" thick door.

We do however carry the Global Link Locking Baggage Lock Actuator Set with Mounting Plate # GL34FR which can fit RV baggage doors measuring from 0.7" to 1.25" thick.
