75 need Argosy MH front hood latches

I see I am not the first that had mechanic break the latches, if anyone has any ideas about a source for these latches I sure would appreciate it. One is needed and two would be better, think a spare is a good idea. Canít send a picture as coach is still at the shop. Is there any alternative latch that would work? Thanks.

I'm not 100% certain but I think the hood latches are the same as the entry door hold back latches.

Main Door Hold Back Latch Airstream

Main Door Hold Back Latch Housing

Depending on how badly the shop mangled the originals you would likely need two of each.

Hope this helps.

Brad

I think these will be perfect, I appreciate the link very much also. I had searched this store but hood latch did not net a hit. I would never have found these. I ordered two even though one of originals is still useable. As it turns out, I donít have an exterior door hold back latch either. The timing is perfect as I get free shipping today!!! I hope they arrive in time for the mechanic to install them, he is a good guy and I doubt he will charge for repairing them. You were extremely helpful Brad and I thank you so much.

Good deal. Let us know how it works out. One of mine is showing its age so I might as well replace it.

75 Argosy hood latches

Update:
Got my coach back and you were right the door hold back latches worked perfectly. As a FYI this does not include the latch release that is attached to the engine compartment itself, if anyone needs that part, will have to find another source.
Thank you so much. One more thing off the list ✅
