Instructions for the Short Panel Kit

 

 Instructions for the Long Panel Kit

While all of our latches can be locked from the outside using your stock lock cylinders, you can not lock your Altman Easy Latch from the inside by pushing the handle forward.

Are you tired of slamming the doors on your 1955-1959 Chevy Truck? 

Are the latches on your classic truck not living up to the other work you've put into your pride and joy?
Face it, most classic truck door latches have been abused over the years and the available options don't offer the quality that your classic or custom Chevy truck deserves. That is where the Altman Easy Latch for 1955-1959 Chevy Trucks comes to the rescue.

The Altman Easy Latch kit is a vehicle specific bolt-on, bear jaw rotary claw latch kit. This kit features contoured jam plates to match the features of your vehicles doors. These are in no way a universal application. Our bear jaw rotary claw latches are each designed to work with the exterior handles, interior handles, and the exterior door lock cylinders of the specified vehicles. Each piece of our bear jaw latches are zinc plated to fight corrosion. Our internal claws are case hardened and black oxide coated. Each kit comes with everything you need for two doors. Latch plates, vehicle specific bear jaw rotary claw latches, templates, hardware, detailed instructions, striker plates, and even stainless steel striker bolts. The Altman Easy Latch kit will have your doors opening and closing smoothly and safely. All of our kits are designed, manufactured, and assembled here in the USA. This particular kit has an option that works with your existing, stock steel interior door panel. Each of our Altman Easy Latch Kits are available for those that wish to use them on a shaved handle application.

Great part, great company

I really enjoyed your kit. I thought the quality was great and it worked excellent. I had to modify a couple bolt holes and trim the interior door panel out a little more than the template to make the inside latch arm move smoothly. But I imagine every vehicle has its different challenges. But I really enjoyed your kit and like how it feels like you’re company is dealing directly with me, instead of a bland warehouse feel like I get from other companies. Keep up the good work. I will use your parts again in the future.

Worth The Money!

Installed these in my 1959 Chevy PU. I opted to make my cuts with a Dremel and a fiber reinforced cut off disc. All went well until I went to install the striker plates. The original bolts are 5/16", 24 (fine thread) what came with the kit is 1/4", 20. So, off to the hardware store to buy 8 new bolts and washers. Otherwise, the kit is worth the money, despite having to hunt down replacement hardware for installation. If the need arises I will purchase again and recommend them to my friends.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • I bought the long panel kit. Now im thinking I want to run a full lenght door panel. Could I buy the short panels separetely? Also with this kit, can you run one piece windows?

    You can purchase the short panels for your needs. You should not experience any issues installing a one piece window kit.

  • Are the long panel plates available separately?

    If you have purchased the short panel kit and find yourself needing the long panels, we can certainly get you fixed up. Just give us a call at 1-866-987-4783
