Cockpit Door Latch Replacement

Post by Doubloon » Wed Aug 28, 2019 8:58 am

Anyone have a part number for the cockpit door latch and lock. Due to a break in, the last owner discarded the original damaged lock and I would like to replace it. Is it a Perko Rim Latch and Lock set? Pictures of the original lock set would also help.
Thanks.

Yep, one of the first things I replaced on Terrapin.
I got the reverse bevel with flush strike.

Remember, to prevent break in, you also need to secure the slider. Of course, that will just force them to break something more expensive.
