This Zinc Plated Enclosed Trailer Door Handle is a replacement part for the popular Bar Style Door Latches, which have a swiveling bar with a flat handled installed on the trailer, and a Latch installed on the Door or ramp. The Bar swivels and allows you to lower the flat Handle into the latch on the door to keep it secure. If your Enclosed Trailer Bar or Handle has become loose and no longer provides a tight seal on the Door or Ramp, you may only need to replace the handle, and not the entire bar. The Handle sees most of the use on the Bar Latch system, if yours has become bent or otherwise damaged then you may only have to replace the handle to get it working again.
This Handle is 14 inches long and features a rubber grip for ease of use and is intended for Weld On installation. A Door Bar or Cam Lock is used in tandem with a Door Latch. The Bar is installed to the Trailer and the Latch is installed to the door or ramp. When installing this Handle make sure the bar will be at the appropriate height to reach the latch on the Trailer Door or Ramp. When the door or ramp is closed, the bar can be lowered onto the Latch and held in place.
