I use the protex and the cowling would have taken a dip without them last weekend. The only comment I'd make is the stainless ones I got about 1/3 of them had turned rusty after a couple of trips out. Others were fine suspect it was a mixed batch, but really good. I also wirelock over the catchplate before closing the protex latch

Call them if you're not happy - I think you'll find they will change them .............

I'm always happy, they are a nice latch - as I said a mixed batch I suspect - the others are perfect as the day they were new.
