In preparing this product for easy installation, like other TYC products we wanted to leave only footprints.
Bastardizing your property on a permanent basis so we can save a few bucks in manufacture just isn’t how we roll.
That’s not because we’re in any doubt that you’ll absolutely love the convenience of the Hartwell latch Oil Door , or that you’ll ever want to go back to Dzus fasteners.
Just that you ( or the next owner) can if you want to.
With the exception of two holes you’ll need to drill, nothing is taken away from your bird that would prevent you returning it to stock condition.
And if you’re in the business of flying & not fixing, this is for you too. We truly have brought the installation burden down to filing one notch and drilling two holes.
Even if you don’t own a 100 degree aircraft countersink (so the heads of those screws can lie flush), we’re betting you know someone a few hangars down who can lend you one.
So please take a minute to read & follow the instructions included with the product.
That way you’ll never need to learn about the seventeen ways not to install it!
