need source for locks

I want to replace several of the keyed compartment locks, with just a turn lock. These fit the lids of the drawers. Who sells these?

Thanks for the reply! Yes the keyed version is available in many styles, I just can't locate the simple 1/4 turn handle only version

Peter,

I used "quarter turn latch thumb" as search words in google and came up with the following. I think the first one looks good.


This one looks pretty close

This one looks promising

Another possibility


Brad

Thanks Brad, your "quarter turn latch thumb" yielded some results at Ebay as well. Just gotta know how to ask, don't you

Non-Locking Thumb Turn Econo Cam Lock - 5/8 inch

Lucky day, my neighbor had one of these, he just ordered at campingworld.
It fits perfectly with just enough clearance to slide the drawer closed

The degree the cam turns is controlled by a disk that sits under the cam. 90, 180, and in some cases 360 degrees in which case the disco is removed. Any locksmith can help you or there is quite a selection on eBay.
