How to Install Boat Style Latches in an SUV Cabinetry Conversion

6. December 2019 10:41

By Brian Daigneault, Solid Wood Worx

I grew up in a cabinet shop and was a born to be woodworker. In the past few years when work slowed in the custom cabinet industry I converted a few friends Vans and SUV's so they had more storage for adventuring, work, or just the weekend beach getaway.

I design and build all kinds of custom woodwork and vehicles at my shop in Huntington Beach, California!In this how-to video I show you how to install these new boat style latches I've used in a few builds recently. I like them a lot more than the push-button knobs i used to use that were cheap and kept breaking, these seem much more heavy-duty.
