Bunk end latch replacements

Anyone here updated the screw type bunk latches on their hybrids with the bar lock handle style? Mine are starting to spin loose of the knob and screw and I would like to see what hardware is out there.

This is what I'm looking for:



The original screw clamps are rusty slipping nonsense. I did find a manufacturer that has them. Part#65004 is for the handle, and #65006 for the lock at Fastec Industrial. 1-800-837-2505.

Very nice. Looks like starcraft has a set as well: Starcraft part numbers: 37012213 and 37012216. I think that I might take mine in once i find them and have the dealer install them so that if there's any problems later on, I can go back to them for it. I know that a lot of this external work is fairly simple stuff, but I just have issues cutting or drilling into anything unless i know what's in the middle or on the otherside.

Thanks for the info!

I made this change when I replaced my water damaged bed core from FR. I ordered the new latches as well. I needed to add a backing plate inside the camper to secure the latch arms. I used 1/4" aluminum, and stainless machine screws with lock nuts. I also used a 1/4" thick vinyl trim spacer under the latch arm for 2 reasons:

1. to cover the existing screw holes from the twist style locks, which were lower than where these arms needed to mount
2. I was concerned the amount of pressure to secure the latch would not compress the rubber pad on the latch arm. Since I was upgrading an older camper, I was not sure if it would work without the spacer. I now think it would be fine, but I still need to cover the original screw holes.

They work fantastic!

I can provide some photos if anyone is still interested.

How did your bed core project go? I just bought a 21' Shamrock with damage, and I need to get the bed fixed. The damage is at the bottom of the panel, but the screws and mollies are pulling out of the panel as well.
