as Harvey (nobody) showed in his photos if you want to mount it on the inside of the hatch, or exactly like Dean's photos if you want to mount it within the thickness of the hatch ribs - but it looks like the Weston latch is pre-assembled, so you might have to cut out some of your ribs to fit it inside the thickness.
The important thing is that it won't be a 'slam' latch that latches itself when you drop the hatch (as Grant's would do) - you will have to turn the handle to unlatch and then turn it back to latch it. It sounds like the Weston is not spring-loaded like Dean's - when you unlatch it, it stays unlatched.
You will need to make up some plates just like Harvey shows to fit on the side wall to receive the rod ends.
Did that help?
Dear Friend Andrew.. I have read this and looked at it so many times
that yours and Harvey,s and Deansters.. advice has sunken in like a ship in rough seas..
I will contact the folks here that are the Dealers or Reps of the lock.
Just maybe them rods can be cut or they are not put together yet.. or
I will make some plates or do as Harvey has mentioned..
Im hoping they have them in stock here ..If not I,ll get them to send one from Ol England..
Thank You Everyone
PS That Lock you recommend is that the C31 as in the company you mention?
Also on my next build I will not build a radius as this...Nonono.
