I am trying to find a 2”x 2” square flush pull ring locker latch for my 1983 S2 sailboat and can’t seem to find a 2x2

I know it's unlikely, given that you need the part, but do you have a picture? And what model (or length) S2?

1. Look at a Defender or West Marine catalog, paper or online. Like: Cabinet Hardware | West Marine U do the looking.

2. Try your local hardware store, preferably a good one with more than just paint and screwdrivers.
I have snd did try again. Thetrouble is finding a 2x2 fish pull ring with latch. I’ll try some hardware stores. Thanks

I'm finding pull rings, but not pull ring locker latches. Am I correct in assuming that you need something that when you lift up on the ring, it retracts a bolt (or equivalent) so the locker or hatch will open?

I think you meant FLUSH ring? Try McMaster Carr, McMaster-Carr for "lifting rings". McMaster-Carr
lol. Yes I meant flush. I like that site but still looking for a 2 x 2 I’m gonna take a picture and see if that rings any bells with anyone I might need a salvage yard for a boat parts

Last time I was looking for a flush ring pull for my fridge cover I had a difficult time also. I was not particularly concerned about the size as I was able to make my new cover fit any size pull. However, after I finally got one it was impossible to grab it with your bare finger. The ring was recessed in such a manner that you needed a screwdriver or other sharp tool to hook and lift the ring. I ended up reusing the 40 year old pull in my new cover.

Yes. I’m going to the boat now and taking a picture to post. Thank you for putting thought to this. Such a simple concept but the 2x2 is the difficult part

My engine cover is like that, but with 2 of them. I put a wire tie on the ring part so it stood out enough to grab with pudgy fingers.

The pic helps. Is that one 2 X 2, or are you hoping to find a 2X2 to cover the whole indented space?
