I am playing around with different latch options for my tire carrier and built this out of 2x2 and a tailgate latch from a mid 70s dodge truck, it is spring loaded,pull the knob on the back to release I was gonna weld this and a backstop to the bumper and make a a recieving slot on the arm or the carrier what do yall think?

that looks pretty sweet.
The only think i would be worried about is the flat side sticking up on the latch part, It looks like it might stick out far enough to keep it from just swinging shut.

by turning the knob on the back i can adjust the depth of the catch.
