View Full Version : What IS it? Trailer part - PIC added
Mar. 2, 2012, 06:18 PM
This piece just broke on my trailer and I would like to replace it, however I do not not its name nor where to find one.
It is an L shaped piece of metal that holds the door to the tack room open at the top. The rest is made up of a spring that puts tension on it so that the door stays open. The metal part that broke is about 13 inches long. Any ideas?

You just reminded me I need to order some parts.
Maybe you can find one here:

Yes, that's where I was looking, but haven't found it yet.
Forgot to mention that the trailer is a Trails West, 2 horse GN with mid tack. The part belongs to the mid tack door and helps it stay open at a 90 degree angle.

How about this? It is on the door/window on the back of the trailer. There is a hole in it that goes through a loop on the back of the ramp securing the two together.

Just to be clear, this part is all metal and all one piece.
The "arm" part is about 13"

Could you just take it to a welding shop and have it tacked back together?

Just call Trails West and ask them for a replacement part. I know my Bee manufacturer always is good for calling when I need parts for my trailer....

^ this. Just contact the manufacturer, they'll know what piece you're referring to and they can send a replacement :)

I see I have stumped COTH again... ;)
I am heading to the Horse Expo this week end, so will inquire with the trailer reps.

Looks to me like one of the "bars" to your trailer window.
