Shower door latch

I need a replacement shower door latch for our 2001 30' Excella. I've tried every place I can think of, and no luck so far.
Anybody got a clue where to get them?
Thanks,

Larry

They are no longer available. Have not found a suitable substitute.

I'd try here. But you probably already have.

They still have the part number (702415-100) but it's sold out. I'll call them in the morning and see if they are getting more. I think I can use some "Super Velcro", to hold it shut while traveling.
I'm finding Velcro almost as necessary as duct tape...

Thanks y'all

Larry

Hi Larry, I am resurrecting your old, unresolved post as I have the same problem, and cannot find a replacement for the original shower door latch (the thin plastic wing that slides between the door and frame when turned vertical has bent down a bit, and now threatens to lock us in our shower!). Did you ever find a suitable substitute? Or has anyone out there tried the newer Airstream latch on older models? It is “Shower Door Latch 703911-101” at that same store.

Thanks,
Adrian

Will try to mod current version of part

After continuing my search on the forums (including another revival of your old post on the subject Larry!), I have concluded no one has solved the 2000-2008 shower latch replacement problem without fabricating their own part. There are many stories of various family members getting locked in the shower though... fun reads those.

I will be ordering the new version of the latch and modifying it as simply/effectively as possible to function... wish this new guy luck! (Proof of new guy status = my avatar photo is currently upside down for some reason)

Adrian
