homemade latch for tire carrier.

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? will it work?

That pin looks too small to me to hold a tire carrier closed.
