Darwin,

What ever happened with the Slider Canopy Latch Handles? I never got one in the mail...

BTW, nice product and a great idea on the roll trim knob!

Default Coming soon!!!

I know this was delayed but there were some engineering issues to work through. In order to make this compatible for retrofit, we've had to do some creative design work. We will not use any set screws, so this presented a challenge.

Be patient. It will be worth the wait.

Default Advantage?

What is the advantge of this over the simple lever now in my plane. Your product is nice looking. I am not sure what the diameter of your new product is but more than 1.5" (approx.) and it will be rubbing on my Oregon Aero seats.

Will the holes in your insert bushing match up with the holes already drilled by the builder in the trim shaft?

I only ask because, for example, my Van's handle will only go on in one direction (facing aft). This is because the holes I drilled through the trim shaft for the AN-7 bolt are not perfectly square. They're off just enough to prevent me from flipping the handle around to face forward. Is this what you mean by "ATTACH LUG MOUNTING SYSTEM IS DESIGNED "LOOSE" TO ACCOMMODATE DISCREPANCIES IN THE BUILDER DRILLED HOLE"? How much oversized is that hole in the lug to allow for builder discrepency?

Nice finished look to the product!

If you only have 1.5" between your seats then you wouldn't be able move the stock lever far enough to trim your aircraft effectively. The knob might be a better option.

Short answer....most likely YES. The hole is .221" in dia. we have already installed it with some very poorly drilled holes. If yours didn't work there is some room to drill it again with the attach lug in place.

They are selling fast we will start working on the second batch just after the holidays. Hope to hear back from people who already got 'em on the way.
