Protekta Plate for the Ford Transit Custom near side load door in stainless steel or a black powder coated finish.
This plate has been designed to protect the latch mechanism on the rear end of the side load door which is now being tageted by thieves. This new method of entry is becoming more of a problem since Ford updated and modified the driver door barrel so it doesn’t open the load area. Thieves are now targeting the side load door with this new method.
Use the Protektaplate to repair your van after a break-in. This eliminates the need to go through your insurance. It also means less down time for the vehicle as it eliminates the need for bodyshop repairs.
Option to add the internal latch shielding. Just choose the correct shield for your van. The euro status of your van can be found on the manufacturers sticker inside the passenger door frame. (See pictures in the product gallery).
The Optional Ford Transit Custom Latch Assembly is for replacing a damaged latch after forced entry on the near side loading door. The latch is available in two versions. From 2012 to 2018 the latch assembly is the same for the euro 5 and the euro 6 engines. From 2018 (68 plate) the latch differs when Ford introduced the euro 6.2 engine.
