Door latch is one of the last things and third(really 4th) times a charm!

I tried a screen door latch as someone had suggested..no good. I tried a regular door knob...no good. Than I saw this latch on Ebay and sold by
www.teardroptrailerparts.com and although I had ordered a right hand I switched to a left but it was to late, They did switch it for no charge and was very happy with the service! Someone answered the phone and took care of it, nice!!!



So I had to drill another hole in the trailer which always makes me nervous...measured 5 times cut once.



Copious amounts of silicone before installation,



Outside is done, lever moves to the left so bar is not in way.



I had to shim up the door and had this left over,



3 pieces worked good but would have to shim the "striker" side,





I made a strike plate up and beveled the edge and it worked great!
