Plastic medicine cabinet latches

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement plastic medicine cabinet latch for my 25 foot '87 Sovereign?

Take a look at the attached photos. One of the photos shows a complete, unbroken latch, the other shows the broken piece.

These latches are a hard, white, plastic that attach to the cabinet with two pop rivets. The latch is about 1" wide.

Thanks

Wow, I can't believe that they still used that crappy part in '87! Ours broke in the same spot as yours and I epoxied it, but it broke again.

When you find a source, I'll need to get one too.

The part is made form aetel, trade name from Dupont Delrin. You can not get any epoxy or other high strength adhesive to stick to it. You might try and make an equivalent part from metal.

Actually, the epoxy I have did stick to it, but it broke again in a different spot.

I'll just find some new ones and keep them handy.

This is the closest that OODM has: http://odmrv.com/catalog/index.php?m...roducts_id=646

My '92 latch like this just broke. Does anyone know where to get one of these or any suggestions for something else? This holds the upper bathroom mirror cabinet closed.
