I am reading with interest the string on bear claw latches but I am still 
confused.  Can someone please explain the whole concept of the bear claw 
latches to me?  What is the difference between bear claw latches and the 
original factory latches?  I have major problems with my 57 doors latching 
properly which causes me to have to slam them repeatedly sometimes to make them 
catch.  I, obviously, want to fix this when I get to my paint and bodywork 
stage, which is about 3 months away.  Are the bear claw latches the way to go?  
I have decided not to shave the door handles but may change my mind on this.  
Does that matter at all in choosing the proper latch?

Obviously, you can see I don't really know a heck of a lot about this subject!  
So, thanks for any input.
