A great way for those trying to eliminate tailgate chains from their truck.

Our hidden latches use a slotted tubular channel to guide a spring loaded locking pin. Mounted inside the upper tailgate bar where they are completely out of sight! Leaving only a cool billet knob visible. Shown with O-rings.

Available in Zinc Coated or Stainless Steel, please specify.

Sold as a pair.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

STEP: READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY!

1. Use latch to determine where to mark your drilling locations. Drill and slot holes, as shown in diagram. A 5/8" hole on the side of the tail gate roll. A 3/16" h x 1" w for the latch lever to operate, along with a 3/16" drilled hole to bolt the latch in place.
2. Remove adjustable latch nob and bolt. Slide latch into place and tighten in bolt through 3/16" hole. Bolt in latch nob. (Latch may need to be tack welded in place).
3. Once latch is installed carefully slide the mechanism into the open position.
4. Close the tail gate.
5. With the tail gate closed, 'snap' the latch open and closed. The point on the latch end is used as a mark to drill your bed side. Drill a 7/16" hole. Install rubber grommet in bed side hole.
