Works great on my 1972 Piper Cherokee 180. Easy to install (though I messed up on some riveting and needed an education on how to remove a CherryMax rivet - those things are NOT falling out!). Not counting my installation mistake, it took about 2 hours to install working slowly. It holds up to prop wash taxiâing on a hot day and is no problem to close.
Works great!! Simple instructions! Easy install!
I purchased the door steward after a taxing plane ripped the factory catch off the door. We just installed it, and im already in love. The door is so smooth, and taxing planes shouldnt be a problem any longer!
5 stars so far. Tired of dealing with the aging support rod on my Beechcraft and worried about gust of wind damage with original one on the plane.
This door steward is great for your Beechcraft in at least 2 ways. It will reduce The possibility of a broken lower door hinge since it will help to slow the door opening by a strong wind. And, it is much more convenient to use
What a great solution to a problematic door hold open rod. I have just installed a new unit on a Beech Debonair and it was very straight forward. I have also installed the units on a Cessna 175-no problem.
This is very likely the best Bonanza mod ever offered. The Bonanza cabin door/ rod combination has always been a weak engineering point. The Door Steward fixes that problem completely. Id give it 10 stars if that rating was available. Install is a simple 2 hour job for the experienced. Would make this mod a first fix to any Bonanza I purchase. Beech should make the Door Steward standard equipment.
I love this product!! I look around at STCs all the time for my Lance, and most of them I shy away from. This one works fantastic, and was economical to buy. Couldnt imagine going back to the old system now. Looking into adding it to the back door. I ordered the Door Steward because my rickety old factory door bracket finally gave up. Ive always wanted one, but never got around to it until the broken bracket thing forced my hand. This is a great product. I highly recommend it.
This product is suitable for all Beech and Piper Main entry cabin doors on the series models listed under the Applications tab.
