Front Door Lock catch

27' Overlander: Not the lock. The catch. Lock is ok. Replaced OEM catch with another OEM but it wore out. They are made of soft pot metal. Any suggestions?Tom

Do you mean a "striker pocket?"

The correct one for your trailer, is soft metal.

If you quickly wore one out, then I would suggest that you have the running gear properly balanced.

That in itself, can cause rapid striker pocket wear.
