Door Check Straps

Recommended Posts

The best replacement I used was from a friend, he got me something that was an airframe rivet, was anodise aluminium and flared perfectly with air hammer.

I know there are copper thing that are similar, but I just use a cotter pins and drill them just under the bottom flange and chop off any excess for neatness, but not really necessary tbh. Talking about these things

I was looking at the pin that goes through the bonnet safety catch. It’s similar. A domed head and a hollow shaft squashed flat to stop it dropping out. I never really looked at it before but it does the job. Simple and effective. 

Think that's good enough

Thanks. I’ll order some now. I hope they don’t send left-hand drive ones. 

Second thoughts I’ll get some clevis pins. Shipping from Edelschmiede killed it!
