Latch/Catch for compartment door

Where can you find the catches for the lower compartment doos like the one with the power cord in it. One fell of the trailer this week and the other seams to be held in place pretty good. What is the technical name they are called, and where can you get them??? This is the kind that flips over and hooks on a catch on top of the compartment. I think they are called draw latches

I have a 1996 Excella

Found mine in the hardware section at a True Value hardware store . Not sure what they were called - baggage door catch, baggage latch ,suitcase latch or something like that. Seems they were about $2 apiece.
