problems with the "T" handle latch

Just wondering if anyone has had any problems with the guts of the "T" handle type closing system. Just bought a used 2006 19H and broke the inside part of where the "T" handle goes on. The guy had a spare there since he had already broke at least one on the exact same spot.

Is there a way to fix this problem? I wish I had the newer style without the "T" wrench. That way you would have a way to lock it as well.
thanks

I'm not 100% sure what the "T" handle is but I think it's the closing system for the bunk boards. If so the latching system installed now is made by these folks and it appears you could order from them. Bolt holes would probably be different but.....

Yes the "T" handle is for the bunks. Were you looking at the FIC Cargo Trailer Door Latch?

Yes, the cargo door latch. There's the piece you posted the pic of that mounts on the bed door. There's the second piece with a lever that the hooked part latches over. BTW, the pic as you have posted it is upside-down with respect to my installation. I looked at their web site again and note they mention the "bar Lock" as optional but don't show a picture. I assumed the bar and the latch were made by the same folks but I'm not sure now. The latch has a sticker with their web site listed but haven't noticed one on the bar. I'll try to remember to take a pic of the latch next time I'm at the storage.

My 23B uses a small black T-handle that fits on a square pin that is recessed in the bunk end latches (2). So far mine are holding up but I think there was some lettering on them that indicated they were made in Germany. I think there was a thread on the hybrid explorer forum where someone was looking for a replacement.

I talked to the company today at the link you gave me and he sent me a pdf drawing of the "bar lock" It looks just the same as the newer hybrids. Now I just need to find someone who has done it before.

It is too big for on here but it looks like the one on ebay. GREAT find on those other pictures. His is a bit different that my trailer but you can get the idea.

T handle

I replaced my T bar locks cause the threads stripped. Had to jury rig the lock on vacation to get it closed. A bit nerve racking. Any way I inquired at my dealer about installing the newer latch and they told me I would need to change the whole bunk door. Apparently not.
