Thanks Colin; I will . I’ve never seen it in use though, but the idea came from looking at the bonnet of a 12 cylinder Bentley! In August, I spent some considerable time with David at Trident in Gateshead, trying to think a solution to an adequate hatch fixing, to no avail. Then saw a historic vehicle rally; took a photo and weeks later the idea evolved with an engineering friend. It will be a great help if a kit is already available as its this one hurdle that has held me back finishing my restoration.

I had a quote from Ian Porter recently as follows:
“We have all the necessary fittings in stock –
The protex over-throw lever and catch works out at £13.35inc VAT each.
The turnbutton and striker plates are £4.90 inc VAT each.
So as one requires two pairs of each assembly the cost would be £36.50 inc VAT plus carriage.”
Hope this helps – works fine on my boat.
