The manufacturer/distributor's nylon or chrome zinc T-handles can be swapped out easily with the stainless version because they have the same cutout and outer dimension, according to general manager Christopher E. Tomao. Available in a standard turn handle or compression function, the handles are ideal for any hatch lid or compartment door, he says. The non-locking latch is $59.99, and the locking latch is $69.99. Prices include a backing plate, mounting screws and an offset cam. Two keys also come with the locking model.
