What have you guys done with your strikers?

Just curious. Kleiner said he had a solution.

These were on Finish line just curious if these would work with FFR supplied latch?

Just curious.

what's your's look like? Mine work fine as described in the manual. will likely replace the washers with solid spacer once the body/paint is done.

One other area to look into.
door latch by craig stuard, on Flickr
See that little tension spring? Remove it and trash it. There is another internal spring that is more than sufficient. Also look at the captured sliding piece and grease it liberally. I like spray white lithium w/ the red tube so I can get it inside where it needs to be. My goal here is to make it easier for the latch to operate so you don't need to slam the door as hard for it to latch. That makes it easier on the striker so it will stay in position longer.
