Re: There is a spring on the companionway locking bar

Bill posted a couple of solutions instead of using the black knobs. I originally made the closures as per the drawing years ago from teak. They worked great. I then saw the metal ones I bought them and gave the teak ones away. . They also work well. However they are too long, are difficult to turn due to their length, and bang on the top of the side of the companionway steps. In retrospect, I should have stayed with the teak ones.

Thank you very much for the photos, drawing and explanation.
This is what I was thinking to have seen on an other SM.
Will work on it.
Appreciate the effort
