Works great. Very strong latches. Better than originals.

Absolutely perfect solution to Cessnas engineering fopar. The 1960 C210 has an access door on the LH nose to the external power connector. That original design weakens at the halfway mark and is dangerous for flight. So instead of 2 latches (as originally designed by a guy laughing all the way to the bank) we built a new panel and added 2 more latches. This eliminated the ability to weaken the metal an also secures the panel better than ever. I am glad to know that you have them. Please get more. I will be fixing more of them.

Perfect fit for my 1957 Cessna 172 oil access door. As always, Aircraft Spruce had it out the door and to me within a couple of days. Thank you.

Could not have worked better. Replaced an oil-access door latch on my 1957 Cessna 172. Perfect match at a great price.

Save yourself some money and buy these new surplus latches. Perfect in every way, these latched were built mil-spec, and will last longer ( in my opinion ). Than the full price new ones

The latch system was a direct replacement for the Cessna oil door latch on my C180. Worked great, and quite a bit less cost than Cessna brand.

It may be surplus but it arrived looking like new and costs a lot less than new.
