Thanks for posting that invoice Ryan. I ordered a 4 - pack of 10 lb. latches just before we changed trailers. I/we broke a couple of latches in the "new" trailer, I'm glad I had those replacements however it was a bit of a PITA to replace as what others have stated is true. The heavier duty latches (male pieces) are larger and require repositioning the screws!
I went through our "new" trailer and added the small washers to ALL of the doors as that all but ended our broken latch issues in '15 Suites!
Changed trailers? Did you get a newer Suite?

Has anybody though about WHY these things break ! I believe NOW that our trailer FLEXS a lot more than first though and the FINE quality of build causes things to move and become MISALIGNED!!! just saying , my opinion!!
I have a 40 inch pantry door with shelves on the door which wouldn't hold the adjustment with 2 hinges. I added 2 hinges (now the spacing is10 inches) and no broken latch part or need of adjustment in over 2 years( Sept 2021 now would be 3 1/2 years).
So if I go to a standard a cabinet maker told me, 20 inches max spacing between hinges I need 5 more hinges to help eliminate wear???

Since my original post I have had 2 latch failures. One on a big door with 3 hinges on 16 inch spacing and the second on 42 inch long door with 2 hinges at 27 spacing.
The weight of the door, both static and dynamic going down the road can't bear all the weight thus the latch is always in stress.
MY analysis and opinion with the support adding extra hinges to the panty has solved my biggest cabinet head ache.
