Arrow Spare tire carrier latch

I have been searching, but can't find it. I'll continue but in the meantime:

I am planning on replacing the bolt that I currently have holding my spare tire swing out with one of those fancy 90deg latches. What I am wondering is which one do I get? They are rated from anywhere between 500 and 4000 lbs. I think that 1000 lbs would do it, but what have you guys used before? I just have a 35" tire on there now, but I will go bigger one day.

I'd get 5135A35 or 5135A37 or something of a similar rating. 500lbs is not enough to last while holding up 500 lbs swinging 3' away. 1k rating at a minimum, 2k if you want a warm fuzzy feeling.

We use 5135A27. We mod it to be positive latching, other wise you will need to and use a clip pin to hold it closed.

Thanks guys!

Brian, Have you had any issues with them rusting at all? How do you mount them, self-tappers, thread the steel?

I got my latch in the mail, It is pretty beefy, and Ridin Dirty, you'll be happy to know that it is a Desta-Co
