Trimark Cargo door locks

Hi, anyone disassemble one of these? Just had the lower part of the coach repainted and while the latches are off I thought maybe chrome handles would dress it up nicely. It looks like the latch can be taken apart by removing the little black pins, but I would like to hear from someone that has taken one apart. Thanks, Jerry

The locks can be removed (and parts replaced if needed). Just pay attention and take photos if you need to remember what direction all the pieces (lots) fit together. Good luck and keep us posted.

I am not sure just which model you have but on mine, yes, they are easy to break down and re-assemble.

ONE thing I found.. the striker bolt is cheap base metal and the weakest point on the bolt is also the highest stress point,, Really great design.

WHEN (not if) they break I figured out how to depress the bolt and open the door using tools without doing damage (All you really need is a small flashlight, mine is an LED "inspection" light with a flexible wand and a single High Brightness LED).

Then I machine the back side of the bolt and lay a steel plate in, some glue and a couple screws later the bolt is not good as new.. It is much, much, better,
Home is where I park it!
