'74 Argosh mh Upper storage bin catches - missing

My 20' front bath Argosy mh has two overhead storage bins with broken/missing catches. I've been browsing the various parts houses and have not been able to locate anything that looks like the remaining parts that are on my doors/bins.

Below is a picture showing the hook that is attached to the bottom of the bin and the white piece of plastic that is attached to the door.

Anyone recognize this catch and know of a possible source for a couple of replacements?

Thanks!

Brad

latches

Here are some pix of what the look like.
I have two of them I took of my 74. The rest were broken.
Shoot me a PM if your interested in them.
I may also have other parts. I am just finishing a complete gut and remodel. I am only reusing the appliances.

Inland RV has them, call or do a search of their web pages. About $5 each as I recall.

I used baby safety drawer latches! They work great with the old underside catch. They are about $5 for a box of 20. Plus you can find them locally at Target type store. The latches I got are a little longer so there is a slight gap if you do not move the underside catch. I have to locate the installed photo. The fact that all but one of the latches were broken I was not willing to form over $5 each.

Now that's interesting! I'll have to keep that in mind. Never had kids so I've never had to look for products like that

Thanks!
