QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What is the material thickness of the black corner plate and the silver strike plates shown in the photos?
The latch installation plate is 18 gauge steel (.045") and the striker plate is 11 gauge steel (.1195")
Will this work on a 55 chevy 1st series truck with power windows?
Yes it will.
I have a 1953 Chevy pick-up. Will this work with vent windows? If not, do you have another option I can use?
Yes, they will work with vent windows.
I have a 54 chevy pickup, will the latches work with the SPAL Deluxe Shaved Door Kit "Shaved-DX"?
Yes, you should be able to use that solenoid kit with no issues. Our Shaved handle version Altman Easy Latch will work with any solenoid kit.
If I go with power lock actuators, do I need to make any mods to the inside door remote (that is, the inside door latch actuator arm)?
No. The lock works independently of the interior handle.
Hi, I installed kindig shaved doorhandles. Is this applicable with your shaved kit? 49 cab and doors but kindig handles. Thanks
The Kindig handles require that you have a "paddle" to press on to open the latch, so our shaved handle option would not work for you. However, our regular kit WILL work with the Kindig handles.
I have a 52 cab but using 49 doors will the latches work
They will work, but you will have to call in your order, so that we can prepare a kit with the proper parts you will need.
Will these latches work for a 1954 gmc pickup as well?
Yes they will.
If I order these for outside handles what do I need if I switch to shaved door handle
Nothing ese has to be done. If you shave the handles later on, the latches that work WITH the outside handles will still work.
hi bought a 54 chevey pickup as project has your door catches fitted how do i use remote locking on then thanks advice on this would appraciated andrew
The latches come equipped with locking provisions attached to them when they are purchased new. This locking mechanism has a connecting point coming off to the side that you can use to connect a universal power lock actuator.
what can I do to lock my doors from the inside?
Each Altman Easy Latch comes with lock provisions that can be used in conjunction with power lock actuators as a means of locking and unlocking the door from the inside and/or outside.
54 Chevy truck, So how do you lock the passenger door?
Each Latch comes with a locking provision. You can use power lock actuators to lock/unlock the doors. If you choose to not use the power option, you can purchase locking buttons for your outside handles that will lock your doors from the outside.
I HAVE A 49 CHEVY 3100 PICK-UP AND AM TRYING TO INSTALL THE KINDIG SPOON TYPE DOOR HANDLES. I ORDERED BOTH THE 49-52, AND THE 52-54 LATCHES BUT THEY DO NOT SEEM TO WORK. DO YOU MAKE A SET FOR THAT APPLICATION?
The combination of parts you mentioned are all the necessary parts to make work with the Kindig handles. However, it may not be as simple as just bolting them in and everything lining up properly. The Kindig handles rely on there being a pad to press on which opens the latch. Youu will need to either line up the handles so that they contact our exterior latch lever in the correct spot to open the door, or fabricate the necessary linkage to do so.
