Galley Hatch T-Handle question

Postby mrcreepy » Tue Jun 02, 2020 10:42 am

Is there any reason to leave the excess shaft on the galley T-Handle? I've hit my head on it a couple of times and considering cutting it shorter and then putting a rubber cap on it.

If what’s sticking out past the latch is excess, trim it flush.
No need to cover it if the cut is smooth.

Thanks for the reply Danny.

I considered cutting it flush, but didn't know if someone was trying to pry on the hatch if having a little extra there for the latch to potentially slide on might deter them a little. I guess if they wanted in they'll get in anyway. Unfortunately locks only keep honest people honest.
