I think I have found a source for 1960s Hehr latches

I am less than a week away on pulling the trigger on a 1961 24' Trade Wind Double. The seller asked me if I had an extra "clasp" to lock the door-within-a-door in place.


I believe this would be the same latch as used on the Hehr windows in my '64. Not a single vintage RV place has them available, but in doing a detailed search, I found several (school) bus supply places that list a part that look exactly like what I need:

Can anyone verify that this might work? I have a call into one of the suppliers to talk about some dimensions (distance between mounting holes, etc.), but I think I may be onto something here.

It sure looks like it will work. Please post the dimensions when you get them.

Thanks,
