    Door handle brace

    Posted by Dave Gwinn on Oct 22nd 2021

    I ordered the door handle braces for my 96 f350 because the doors driver/ passenger side bolt holes to mount the door handle latch were broken. I took my doors apart an placed the door handle brace in place an marked two holes top left an bottom right side on the bracket . Drilled my holes an used the rivets to secure it into place on the door. After all installed the door handles an door was nice an stiff with no movement at all. Definitely a most have . Really great quality an very easy to install took me 10 minutes total to do the install

    Easy Peasy

    I was surprised to find a poor welding job from a prior owner on the door. I had a little trouble lining up the hole in the door and the plate to attach the latch to. While the latch works better, it still requires a bit of a jerk, suggesting the cable is stretched. More repairs to come!

    1997 F250 door Handle reinforcement

    This product made a huge difference in how easily the door latch operated and added a very sturdy feel to the truck door. The fit was perfect and using rivets instead of bolts was nice, no worries about the plates coming off from vibration.

    Made a big difference when opening the door, can’t feel any flex in the door anymore. Super easy to install and doesn’t take long at all to do. Differently would buy again.
