Window 'clasp' for '67 Globetrotter

Hi all,

I'm missing the middle 'clasp' for the front window in our 1967globetrotter... I've loaded a picture of what the others look like. Any idea what the formal name is for this piece and where I might find a replacement? It essentially extends out when the knob is cranked to snag the hook on the window and shut it tight....

Thanks much!

Exclamation Window clasps

Hey! I have this same problem with my 67 safari. Many of the clasps are rusted and unworkable or gone altogether. I hope someone with a solution replies to you post.

they are easy to take apart. if it's just the barrel shaped "nut" that the threaded arm screws through, I think Inland rv had some of those made at one time. If they are there but non-functional (stripped) that is the part that is usually broken in half or threads pulled out of. It's a weird thread type too. Worth calling, I know the whole latch is only available when someone parts out a window frame. There was someone on the airstream classifieds that had lots of doors and windows, maybe you could by a window frame with them still attached?

That goofy screw is a double start thread.

The internal nut is called a "barrel nut".

I've been looking for the same part! We came up with something that might work, but it'd have to be retro-fit. Maybe somebody will come up with something better.

I appreciate everyone's response! As a newly, I'm glad for the help. I will get creative and come up with something.

"I will get creative and come up with something."

Now that is the true spirit that is needed to keep an old trailer on the road.
Please share your successes.
