Tailgate Latch Mounting Spacer Bolts

Fits: 1942-72 Ford F-100 Trucks (Each truck takes 1)

Part Number: 80265-W

Sorry, this item is no longer available. See notes and alternate parts below.

If you have a single wall tailgate we suggest installing with our mounting spacers.
There are a couple ways to used the spacers.
1...use as a spacer and run bolts or screws through latch and spacer into sheet metal.
2..Use spacer by welding on bedside or gate. NOTE the large hole in the center is used for welding so nothing shows on the outside. Then bolt latch onto threaded mounting spacer.

fits on either side, sets latch out from gate or from bed side.
shown with the latch, so you can make sure you are ordering for the correct latch.
note this spacer fits both the latch side or the hook side. most trucks only need spacer on one side or the other, but in some cases you might need both. Usually I like to put it on the bedside as it sets the latch out enough to catch the tailgate in the best area.
