Door Lock Needed

The cabin door lock on my 1983 Formosa 51 needs replacing. Does anyone have any idea where I can order a replacement lock?

Re: Door Lock Needed

Various companies make them, you'll just have to search until you can find one that will fit. The one on my tri is probably 25-30 years old and was made by Perko. You might try the Defender catalog.

Re: Door Lock Needed

on my 41 i use a hasp and padlock . interiorly i have a barrel bolt for the slider.
the formosa door lock i have was destroyed many many years ago. looks nice but.....


welcome to cf.

leaky teaky yacht club, a formosa owner group, in yahoo groups, (see my signature), may know how and where to find formosa parts, if there is any such place--our boats have not been constructed for many years. ---

PI... Post a photo, I have several old cabin door locks in my "junk" box... I might have what you need.. Free, but you pay shipping!
