These are one of the best upgrades to my truck!

I bought these a few months back and was worried about cutting into my door. Well I finally got over the fear and went for it. The instructions were very clear and thorough. It took me about 2 hours to do the first door because I kept checking and rechecking everything. It took a lot less time to do the passenger door. These got my doors to close securely and align perfectly. I know they're not intended to suck the door in, but it's a happy side benefit. I don't have to worry about my doors popping open or having to slam them to close. I had tried and retried adjusting the old latches endlessly. They would work for a few weeks/months but a constant pain. These have been on for a few weeks and no change since install, easy crisp secure closing and opening. This is a great product and I would/will recommend them to anybody.

Easy Latch for 1952 Chevy truck

I took my time so the install took a few hours. The directions were spot-on. I didn't anticipate having to removed to door glass, but it wasn't that difficult. The results are amazing. Not only does my door now shut easily, it actually pulled my door flush to the body. I know it's not advertised for this, but it greatly improved the look of the truck with the doors shut. This kit isn't cheap, but it is well worth the money. Quality hardware and instructions. I'd recommend this kit to anyone with the original latches.

Nice latch, easy to install, works very well

Latches were easy to install and work very well, all parts seem well made and fit perfectly. Prior to purchasing these latches, I purchased new reproduction stock latches and was not satisfied since I had to slam the doors to latch them, with the new Trique Manufacturing latches the doors close much nicer and no slamming is required. Thank you for a great product at a reasonable price.

Great addition to my truck

This system is great!! I can now close my doors without slamming them and feel secure when driving. The doors popped open a few times with the old locks even after a lot of adjustments. Now I have no worries. Easy to install and work great.

    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.
