Re: C172 Door Catch

The best fix is an inexpensive kit called "Sky Catch" that attaches to the original Cessna strike bracket. It is simple to install, has adjustable springloaded grip tension, and is corrosion resistant.

They're $34.95 per pair postpaid, from Romilly W. Traves, 5555 Columbia Road, Medina, OH 44256. Phone (330) 723-2778.

I installed these on my 172 several years ago, and am extremely pleased with them.

I can e-mail the instruction sheet and photos of my installation if you're interested.

Re: C172 Door Catch

Looks like a great replacment Stan! Better then the original design.
One more thing. Is there an STC for the C172 or did you get field approval from your local FSDO? If field approval, did you do your own documentation or did you borrow from someone else?

Re: C172 Door Catch

According to Romilly Traves, no STC or field approval required; a simple log entry is all that's necessary.

Stan,

Would you mind emailing the pictures and installation material to me?  My a/c could use a new set!

Thanks,

Stan,  I'd like to see some pics of the latches also. I've got a 1957 C172 and it's about time to change them.
Thanks,
