QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Will these correct the handles sagging as well as the doors popping open?
They will certainly assist in those problems. Our latches are a newer design with much better functionality than stock replacements. As for the handle sag, it is very possible that our latch will improve the way the handle sits. Do keep in mind that over the years, your handle shaft may have twisted. This may require additional work to get your handle to sit perfectly straight.

I have a 51 f1 ford pickup it has no key holes and no door laches will these work on mine and could I put electric poppers with them (aucuwaiters)
The kit should work fine for your application. You would order our shaved handle option. There will be a place to connect your inside door handle, as well as your door solenoid.
I have a 51 f100 with original leaches and only 1 key cylinder on the pasinger side if I get your leaches can I put key cylinder on both doors
Both of the latches in the Altman Easy Latch kit come with lock provisions installed, so if you wish to add a lock cylinder to the drivers side, you will be all set up.
