Bearclaw latches for 34 ford

I'm looking for the do's and don'ts to install bearclaw latches in a 34 tudor sedan. I need to know the suggested size (small / large) latches and whether I need the install kit. I also would like to hear about your experiences of installing the latch on the door or the body sill. Which is prefered?
Thanks
Jack

As the Moderator of General Rodding Tech.....I would like to WELCOME YOU HERE...

I have NO experience with Bear Claw latches except that I know a lot of heavy equipment uses them....They may be a good investment in a 34 Ford because of the suicide doors..

I have suicide doors on my 32 3W also...and will have to look into some way of keeping the door closed securely. I saw a 33 coupe door come open at 60 mph and it is NOT a pretty sight.....


Maybe this question would receive more attention and better responses in the body area of this forum. I am going to move it there..

Again....WELCOME.....

DEUCE....

Call Hagan. They will send you a video that shows bearclaw installation. The kits aren't a bad idea.
