To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Direct fit on my camper shell, installed in about 5 minutes and works great! Update.... Went from 5 stars to 3. One of the locks has already broke. It will not lock, almost don't get it to unlock. It looks like the dust cover or something has broken off and went into the lock not allowing the key all the way in.
Hard to know the OEM dimensions without first disassembling however you might want to do so because I had to drill out the center mounting hole on my LEER shell (on my RAM 1500 Quad Cab, 6'4" bed) to 11/16th's to accommodate mounting these latches. Also I ended up using the back mount from the old latches as I did not feel like trimming the plastic flange on the new latches so it fit flush. Complicated the install a bit however, I have a well furnished shop so no big deal (for me, ha-ha).
If you have a camper shell rear flip up door you need T-handles that rotate left to right and 2nd t-handle right to left. These that were received ONLY rotate left to right which means when locked, one handle is horizontal and the other vertical. I also DID NOT receive the mounting gasket as shown with the kit.
good quality, had to modify holes on cap of truck to fit. One thing I was happy to have were the covers. I hoped it would protect it from the elements and car wash. First time through the car wash one side is gone now.
Super easy install. All the parts were there plus dust covers. Keys worked and all moving parts were smooth. Better than expected. Would recommend to those changing their T handle locks on a truck cap.
Handles are great but for my application, I needed one that turns to the right and the other that turns to the left. I used them but on one side the latch comes up from the bottom up. My other option was to have one handle vertical and the other horizontal.....
I’m rating this as 4 stars because both locks turn the same direction. Because of this, in order to lock my topper one lock has to be horizontal and the other vertical. Other than that, the quality is great and they are easy to install and operate.
