Overview

These English fuel caps are used on most of the worlds super cars and bikes, and some series production aero planes. They are beautifully made in forged and bright anodized aluminum. The high precision and easy to operate mechanism is very secure and non vented. They are designed to keep the fuel in and the water out. The lock is there to ensure that your tank is free from contaminants.

Cap assemblies come complete with cap, gasket, and flanges as ordered. Two keys come with the locking version. Fixing can be by rivet, bolt, weld or glass in as appropriate. These are flush caps of outstanding quality which are ideal for virtually any homebuilt aircraft.
Order the attach ring separately as needed, see accessories.

Reviews

As Robert says, all Cirrus gas aircraft use these 300 series fuel caps. Do not understand Jasons problem. Re locks, replacement numbered locks are often available so as to match an older one. Just quote the number required and request a replacement lock. eg 615.....
