Unhappy Cabinet latches

I am in the process of restoring my 1965 Caravel. I have several broken cabinet latches. Does anyone know where I can find some? Also need a couple of repair parts for the MC16c Dometic Refrigerator. Type 210A 900 BTU Per hour.

Post a picture of the parts you need. I kept the Dometic out of my 64 Overlander in case anyone needed any parts. Yours is a smaller unit but many of the parts may interchange.

We have those silly plastic latches on our 68, aweful stuff. We actually tried some magnetized latches you can get at any Home Depot/Lowes/Ace Hardware type store. I think we got the idea from 65glbtrotter. We did the one above the fridge and now are planning on doing all of the over heads with them.

Refrigerator & cabinet latches.

I quess I wanted to stay a purist. The magnet latches will most likely be a good solution.

The capaliary tube from the gas valve to the sensor within the unit has broken, most likely from vibration. If you have the valve with the capilary in tact I would most likely be interested in buying it.

You may contact me directly don@custercountyhomes.com or dbishop@remax.net

I live in Westcliffe, CO and am a real estate broker with RE/MAX as you most likely gathered.

also looking

hi don in westcliffe- from estes park- I'm also looking for door and drawer hardware, don't care about authentic vintage, just want something with a positive latching effect, in chrome. I've seen them out there- somewhere? Magnets wouldn't stop something heavy from forcing the door open in a sudden turn, or over RR tracks- mostly, but not always. Anyway- good luck with your search...tim

I am looking for a replacement latch for bathroom mirror for a
1995 25' Excella.
I am told that the factory no longer stocks this item.
Did not see anything like it at Inland RV.
Here is a picture.

Which ones are you after, below the bed or the overhead latches? I may have a source for the chrome below the bed latches, the overhead plastic catches are available from Inland RV (for a price ) Post a picture to help identify.
