        DON'T DO IT

        I bought these latches 2 years ago and have been frustrated with them the entire time. Difficult to line up the post with the latch. Will work its way loose through vibrations. Cap covering the post hole fell off and now the interior is rusting. Black coating faded first year. Very disappointing.

        Locking latches

        I bought these exact latches a while back from a didn't site and absolutely hate them I couldnt keep the rod lined up with the lock so I have to use a hammer to seat the lock so it won't come open while driving just ordered stock style latches from extremeterrain along with some tube flat fenders
