Roof mounted latch

Post by samleeds on Fri Aug 04, 2017 7:39 am

On the roof (interior) of my 93 autosleeper vw clubman, there are 2 brown plastic swivel arms mounted on the roof that twist and hold the cupboard door up when opened towards the roof. Does anyone know what they are called and where can they be bought please.

I've never seen them used in the way you describe. Do the cupboard doors not have stays to hold them open?

I haven't seen them used like that, but for a tall owner it's a sensible modification. The problem with the stays is that - because of the way they work - you cannot get them to hold the door right up against the roof (because you have to be able to push them up to release them).
