The devil is in the details.
Those darn OEM Corbin latches rust out, and even though some “PB Blaster” keeps them working, they’re a real eyesore.
Vintage Trailer Supply to save the day. “VTS-720 Stainless Draw Latch”
It’s a simple replacement. What you’ll need:
- 1/8″ bit and drill
- Rivet gun (preferably manual, since it’s tight clearances)
- Stainless latches
- Needle nose pliers
- Standard pliers
- Safety glasses
The base plate is going to need a slight curve to match the banana wrap door. Grab the top of the base plate (near the hinge) with the needle nose pliers, and grab the opposite end with the regular pliers. Give it a little bend… not too much, just a little arc.
See You Down the Road!
