Door Catches

In restoring my 71 Safari I have several door catches that are broken. Does anyone know a source for catches like these?

Thanks in advance!

That black latch comes with the rest of the cabinet latch.

Many years ago, it was available by itself, but is not anymore.

Angry early 70 closet latches

F Y I There are several sources for the pictured latch. As Andy advises the entire latch must be purchased. No big deal and reasonably priced. The main problem, and is being discussed ...there are no instructions as to how to properly assemble the parts received. I have ruined several assemblies attempting to put them together so it works as it should. HOPEFULLY someone will provide assembly instructions and maybe illustrations to do it correctly the 1st time. Jim & Mitzi 73 - 75 and 77 International Sovereigns
