'81 Excella Center Bath Medicine Cabinet Latch

On my 81 Excella II with the center bath, I am wondering how the medicine cabinet door was secured. My door just flops around. I don't see any obvious latch mechanism.

Ok here is a pic of the type of medicine cabinet I have. How is this thing supposed to lock shut? Surely someone must know. It is the one on the right with the mirror above the toilet.

I have an 83 Excella with center bath; my medicine cabinet door has a push latch on the lower left hand corner. You push on that corner to pop the latch so that the door can be opened, then push on that corner again to engage the latch so that the door will stay closed. You should be able to see either the latch inside the medicine cabinet if it is still there, or the screw holes if the latch has been removed.

There is a little piece of plastic at the bottom left corner of the cabinet but there is nothing that looks like a latch. Could you take a photo of yours for me?

And perhaps you could post a photo of yours, too...

Here is what mine looks like. I am assuming the little black square thing was a catch that you rotate to lock and unlock the cabinet door but I have no idea what it looked like to start with.

There is no mechanism behind the mirror or anything attached to the inside of the door or frame of the cabinet on the inside.

Perry,
There are a few options for you if you are without, per se.
Try the Home Depot isle, they have some push/ release type latches that are to be attached from behind the door-

Another option is Inland RV...they may have a direct replacement....
And if you want to go high tech.....a marine site can get you chrome gizmos, however in that specific application. MHO is that you may not want to get killed with the price up life on the last option.

Just a thought. Hope this helps
Cheers

I will do some more investigating. There must at least be some holes where the dohicky attached. Thanks for the pics.

my cabinet uses what I call a double roller release hinge. They are easy to find at HD and easily attached--double roller "c" clip catch, made by Liberty

I am worried that if I try to attach something to the cabinet or mirror that the fragile plastic will just crack. There is nothing under the plastic to support anything. The same plastic is on the back side of the mirror.
