Is the distance between the pivoting point and the hook the same of 51L1-1X1AA and V951L04-1X1AGV?

Is the distance between the pivoting point and the hook the same of 51L1-1X1AA and V951L04-1X1AGV?

 

 

 

Question:

 

I am looking at the Camloc tension latches on your website,
and the 51L1-1X1AA is listed as having a substitute V951L04-1X1AGV.

 

 

 

This drawing of the 51 series latch from your website shows
the dimension between the hook and the pivoting end is 1.94”

 

The drawing below of the V951L04-1X1AGV show the dimension
between the hook and the mounting holes is 57mm = 2.24”

Can you confirm that both the latches have the same distance
from the hook to the mounting holes?

 

 

 

 

Answer:

 

The part 51L1-1X1AA has become obsolete since the tooling
broke down.

 

V951L04-1X1AGV is the new latch, and I can confirm that it’s
fully compatible and interchangeable with the old latch.

 

 

 

Note that the distance between the pivoting point and the
mounting holes isn’t mentioned on my drawing

(it’s not a controlled dimension)

 

Therefore I’ve measured the distance myself.

You can see that the minimum distance is 43.92 mm, and the maximum distance is 52.28mm

 

 

So the indicated distance, 1.94” = 49.276mm , is between

 

the minimum and maximum distance between the hook and pivoting point I’ve
measured.
