I too was successful get a replacement and some spares from Amazon. On the broken part, I noted the manufacturer's name to make certain the Amazon replacement was compatible.

I agree with Mr. Cross. You might find your search enhanced using the following terms to locate sellers via the web: "double ball latch catches"

These latches come in a variety of sizes (length & width) and have different ball tension (15lb, 20lb, etc.) that you can adjust with a small screw driver. They can be mounted to drawers (screws opposing) and wardrobe/cabinetry doors (screwed at 90 degree abutment). They are generally cheaper than the plastic RV products and are durable enough to outlast your ownership period.

These ball latches look like a great idea for a remodel like mine. My question is, can they hold the drawers, doors, etc. closed going down the road? I thought Iíd need some sort of locking knob. I was thinking of the round push knobs.

I have not had that problem since install 9yrs.
A trick for quick install, install the screws as pictured, close the door and push, drill a pilot hole at the marks. (I used 3M 4200 on the threads)
A nice feature...the latch tension is adjustable.
