Where to buy black rubber window fastener/clasp

What are these called and where do I buy more? Are they window clasps? Fasteners? It's the black rubber piece with a "T" grip that secures the front window guard to the rig. It appears ours were cut when our storage unit was having problems with break-ins. Our rig is a 2011 25' FB International. Thanks!

Call the factory, or your nearest Airstream dealer. I know that Out of Doors Mart in Colfax NC does sell a lot of vintage and contemporary parts, so you could also look up their phone number in the morning. They're reasonable (well as reasonable as anything Airstream can be.)

Sorry about the break in.... stupid, they could have just pulled them!

Not sure this is identical, but I've seen replacements in the store at Al's RV in Phoenix:

Rubber Hood Latch: Doors & Door Hardware

Also, on Ebay:

Every Airstream dealer has those rubber hold downs, or can get them with no trouble. If your local dealer doesn't have them for some reason, you can get them online from any Airstream dealer that sells mail-order.

Further evidence of the stupidity of criminals. They cut them instead of just unlatching them?? I think kneecapping would be an appropriate punishment.

I got hit also. USAA is sending an appraiser tomorrow morning. I ordered all of the ruined parts at Camper Clinic today. I need the trailer for Alumapalooza in about 3 weeks. They cut my rubber latch also.

Did they smash your front window like they did mine? They ruined the screen and day-night blind. Then they ruined the door latch trying to get out of the trailer. They forced the latch because they didn't realize they needed to throw the little lever to get out.

They hit 26 rigs in the yard that night. They stole the breaker bar and socket for my ProPride hitch and used it as a window smasher on other trailers. They dropped it when they ran and that is the only thing I have recovered. They stole about $1100 of contents from me and left an $800 projector sitting on one of my chairs.

They know who they are, but the sheriff's dept is not doing anything about it.

Who knows... the sheriff's dept. knows who did this but won't act? Or the yard owners know but don't have sufficient evidence? Maybe you need a good old Texas posse.
