I need some help selecting a latch.
I use my boat for transporting and found myself using boards to make the center seat and front deck one big deck. I got the idea to make a removable deck that I could just drop in when I am hauling stuff and remove when I'm not.
I don't like the idea of using wood but I had a a few sheets of 3/4" plywood around. The Plywood is resting on 1/8" thick 1"x1" angle. I added some cut down 2x3 for strength. Then coated it with kilz and what ever exterior paint I found firs in the basement.
Here are some pics:
Boards in resting on the angle
Here is a shot of the angle and the edging I put on it for safety
Ribbing made it much more ridged
My current plan is to add a piece of z metal to secure one side to the angle on the boat
For the other side I thought maybe a nut-cert, but would rather a latch like this
Problem is I need one that will work in a 3/4" price of plywood and latch over a 1/4" or so angle with edging on it.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank in advance
