Yep. totally agree.

Also, IMHO these are a must too. Use all metal lock nuts adds a bit more security.

Having now studied the fitting instructions for the PA lock, am I correct in the assumption that the centre rotating cam replaces the multi layer 'safety catch' that is on section 45 of the build plans ?

Yes.

I've never seen an installed example of the Van's supplied safety catch on any of the RV-10's I've looked at. They all have the PA cam device.

Save some paint as well. After seeing the Vans prototype where the pins exit the door, I came up with a piece (4) of ss to protect the frame from inadvertent attempts to close the door with the pins out. Itís going to happen. I saw ones that wrapped around the frame and tied into the nylon block that looked great, but with a close door/frame gap I was unable to close the door. The 2 ss cs rivets go right into the angle support and with a little rtv smear under the plate, no scratches. Front and rear were different spacing for the rivets to center on the angle support, so 2 for the front and 2 for the rear.

I'm using the clear(ish) 3M protection tape used on automobile masks for that purpose. Ain't gonna stop the area from getting a dent, but should prevent paint chips.
