Latch Bolt restoration (Bargman L400)
I suppose that many peoples have the same problem that I had with the latch bolt of my handle. It was so worn out that it was not holding the door closed any more.
The choice was to buy a parts kit on E-Bay costing more than 150$ or to rebuild the bolt that I have witch is what I decided to do.
Here is the result of my work. The new bolt is made of aluminium and is glue to the steel part with epoxy glue.
The old bolt, made with soft metal has been very easy to remove using a normal plumbing torch. It melt away in less than 3 minutes.
The Bargman L400 handle is installed on many Trilliums and Bolers. On other brands too. It is extremely difficult to find it at a reasonable price.
