Camper Trailers Tech Tips

Latch Handle





latch handle

Our CUB Supamatic camper trailer has adjustable toggle latches to secure the upturned floor. As most CUB owners will know, the latches closest to the hinge point are the first latches to be pulled down in the closing sequence. These two latch handles require a considerable amount of force to close and as such can bruise the heel of one's hand.

I have modified an aluminium tube which slips over the handle to make closing the latch a breeze. All I had to do was slightly flatten one end of the tube with a hammer.

Note. Excessive force can rip the screws out of the campers body. It is better to identify & remove the problem, which is usually too much extra stuff on the bed.
