QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Hi there. Should the latches work with the stock lock mechanism on my 56F100? It seems that the locks don’t reach the latch mechanism. Please advise. Thanks . Gregg
You can use your stock lock cylinder along with our Altman Easy Latches. Included in your kits hardware you will find 2 small stainless steel lock cylinder replacement pins. You will need to remove the 2-prong pin from your stock lock cylinder and replace it with the one we provided.
