Your latch replacements kick ass. I've been enjoying mine for two years now. I hope that my high praise, and that of your silent customers, overwhelms anyone that has any complaints. Anyone obsessing over the appearance of an invisible replacement part can't be made happy anyway.

Carry on, and congratulations on the success you've had with these.
Thanks for the awesome review! Much appreciated!

Another completely satisfied customer! Mine have worked flawlessly for over a year. A great part that won't crack like the OEM piece did.

Good job!!!

Damn, I wish I found these before I replaced mine. What a pain that was.

Just ordered the new redesigned pair. Now, I do have a question. The rear latch was already broken on the "new to me" Tacoma. Which means the pins that were there are long gone. How do I get new pins to go with? And thanks so much for a great quality product!

A good hardware store should have roll pins of the appropriate size.

Hey guys!
I'm just about out of the old design pivots, so I have removed them from eBay and lowered the price of the NEW design!

PAIR: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=231026853367
SINGLE: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=330977292270

I still have about 100 left of the old design, which will be sold off on Amazon before I update that listing.

Thanks again for all the praise and support!

I'm all out of the old style, so I've updated the Amazon Listing. New design available on Amazon with the link a few posts back!

Thanks again for the support guys!

Thanks!

Like many others, the parts were brittle and just fell apart upon opening. I just ordered a pair. Thanks for the design.

Love mine had them a year. It was the first mod I ever did. I bought the truck with the plastic ones broken. I ordered them 2 weeks before even getting the truck.

Thumbs up




Though I bought this well over a year ago, I finally got to replace them this past weekend. WOW, no more road nice, coming from the rear window!

Though only the driver side wouldn't latch, they were both broken. Glad I bought this, most excellent product at a most excellent price!
