New bunk door closures

Went to the Salt Lake RV show yesterday. Got a good look at new attached bunk ends. I've seen those before, but was surprised by the new bunk door closure which is a rod system. The advantage could see was that it would be easier for a shorter person to lock the door closed. My only concern was that it looked like it was made of a plastic compound,even the bracket that was attached to the door. I'd like to hear some input from some of the new owners.

Guess when I go pick mine up at the dealer I will check it out. Maybe I can get some more pics with the door closed.

Are those in lieu of the locks? Or added in addition to the locks to tighten seals?

Just had the factory replace our bunk ends with the newest design last fall. Heard that a new closure system was coming, but we got the original latches. New system look good.

I have a 2013 21SS received on Jan. and have the old style with the latch on top. I guess this system is for the 2014. It looks like it will get an more even seal with closures on the top and bottom.
