    Hi Guys!
    I've been on the road for the last 16 hours, got a Dad in the Joplin Mo hospital with a bad heart......marathon road trip from Tampa Florida....... when I get home in 6 or 7 days, I'll shoot photos and tell you the story.
    Someone send me a PM reminder or something......

    Glenn,
    I have inside latches but since my doors are suicide style they are at the top front corner of the doors. The bear claws had to be swapped right and left, and since I don't have outside handles, the opener mechanisms are simpler.

    Does your setup locate the bracket under the channel, and have linkage running on both sides of the glass for inside and outside handles?

    I know that this is an old thread but hope Glenn is still active here. After looking at this for a few hours I finally understood it ,I think. Will post a pic of how I see. Wonder if any more description and pics are available of the inside handle? Thanks.
    I emailed Rocky hinge about shipping to canada but no reply after a week. They don't show dimensions of the minis so wonder if someone has them. I see small and mini autolocs on ebay but the one set was 4 5/8 x 1 1/4 x 3/4 which appears not to be mini except for the 1 1/4. Price was good if they would work.

    Glen, thanks for sharing.
    I assume that we can still key lock our doors from the outside without issue after doing this modification?

    If I had a time machine, I'd take a current day camera or video device back and capture this again for much higher quality.

    Glen just to be absolutely clear here.
    I see Rocky Mountain Hinge have 4 models for Mini Bear Claw Latches.
    Is there one specific item out of these 4 that we should be focusing on?

    Maybe your reply could include the specific MBC Part Number???

    Well, they didn't have that many to pick from back then, but this one would have been the one I used.
