4x Innovations now has the strongest and cleanest tire carrier latch system available in the off road world. This great new latch is much different from your typical De-Sta-Co style clamp latch. First of the latch is very easy to close, simply close your tire carrier, rotate the latch handle into the closed position and that's it. No more fumbling around with a floppy latch bar. Second the latch is securely held closed by both a built in friction catch and spring loaded catch pins. In addition to the spring catch holding the latch closed it also latches open to keep the latch from swinging down, hitting and scratching the paint on your bumper.
The heavy duty latch kit comes with mounting plate, latch plate, handle tube welded in place, rubber handle, spring latch, latch catch tube and hardware.
