Are you sure you got the 5 parts that are needed? The reason I ask is my first order on 12/14/04 seemed excessive at $104. My second purchase on 1/5/05 (for another builder) was $248 for the same parts!

I called Vern and raised cane. He did bring the price down -- a little.

I hope you got more than the handle for $95! Thats about a $5 part in materials and 20 minutes of work to fabricate.

hi wayne - have the plans for the handle - do you have a dimension for the EL handle 3"X6" ??

thanks, love the design

oh yeah - anyone know why the safty is 301 SS - seems like any SS would work?

Dust:

By "EL" handle I'm assuming you mean the interior handle? I remember the vertical part of the handle being 5 inches, which I may cut down to 4 inches. The more critical dimension is the top part of the L. I don't remember that one. The reason is because its length is totally dependent on how far away the rotation point of the handle is mounted from the forward latching hook. I'd have to go back and check my drawings.

Do you have a finished install yet, i'm making the parts this weekend. i also changed all the material to ss, i just don't like aluminum, the ss should wear better.

mmmmm, so yes the EL is the interior handle and yes we noticed that there was no dimension from the IP also - seems they must agree.

I have the parts made. Won't install the latch assembly until after the filling and sanding is done on the fuselage. Email me privately....

You'll need alot more travel than that. My handle rotates about 97-ish degrees before the hooks are opened enough to disengage.

Dust, I still cannot find the pin-extending cylinder lock that's shown on my web. Here's my alternate concept. It's just a 90-degree cam lock and it is installed forward of and in line with the exterior handle. The pawl engages under the bolt that holds the linkage.

Well - that is much better, i was fixated on the handle.

On the locking mechanism, the lock comes with a variety of tabs, which are steel and have a SQUARE hole in them. Easy to bend in a vice with a hammer, as my pic shows, cheap and it fits the lock

In the location shown in your pictures, the cylinder barrel is exposed. It's very near the range of motion of the control stick. I foresee it removing skin off the back of your hand during a panic-clutch-grab. Where I've shown it, the cylinder lock is hidden. It's not lethal.
