Accordian door catch

My accordian door on the inside of the trailer is missing the magnetic "doo-hickey" catch.
Does anyone know of a place that I can get one of these?
I really do not want to replace the door as it is in very good shape.
Would Lowe's or Home Depot have something like this?

Thanks!

we repaired ours - the magnet was weak. We got parts at the local rv dealer for a pleated door latch, disassembled the original "doohickey" and replaced the magnet. The part on the door jam was just a chunk of metal....

If you have a choice, a "rare earth" magnet has a stronger pull.

Well, mine is missing completely.
I know what is supposed to be there. I just don't have one at all.
I need the whole latch, inlcuing the magnet.
I do like the idea of the rare earth magnet. It will hold really well.

I was in Home Depot yesterday. They had an assortment of magnets and handles. Might want to check them out?
