Are the latches on your classic truck not living up to the other work you've put into your pride and joy?

Latch plates, vehicle specific bear jaw rotary claw latches, templates, hardware, detailed instructions, striker plates, and even stainless steel striker bolts. The Altman Easy Latch kit will have your doors opening and closing smoothly and safely. All of our kits are designed, manufactured, and assembled here in the USA. This particular kit also includes new black wrinkle-coated interior straps that go from your inside handles to your new Altman Easy Latch.

I just recently received my new latches for my 56 Ford PU. I am not installing them until spring, but I'm very happy with the parts and kit as a whole. Not sure why I never heard of this company before. I have had my truck since 1999 and have hated the original latches since day one. Tnx for a nice product. Unknown on 20th Dec 2016
