Bathroom door hinge

It bathroom door has a full length hinge , at the mid point there are two 5in sections with integrated springs which keep the door open and provide privacy when using the shower .
These springs are broken and need to be replaced . Anybody know where I could find replacements . Thanks

I doubt you'll find just the springs unless you happen to have an industrial supply house in your area that specializes in springs. We had the same problem a couple years ago and I spent months trying to find the correct springs. Finally I ordered the spring and hinge assembly from Lichstinn Motors in Forest City IA.

It might sound like a simple thing to find just the springs until you open a catalog and find out just how many you have to choose from in that particular length and wire size. There are literally hundreds.

We have the same spring section hinge. What I did with ours was purchase a magnetic cabinet door latch and installed it at the bottom of the door so the door and the wall section it comes in contact with when open line up.

If you do call Lichtsinn, as suggested by others, have your vin # and coach sn ready and ask for Lonnie or David in parts. Excellant people to deal with. They will be able to tell you a lot about your particular coach.

When we bought ours it was in the neighborhood of $20.00 for the assembly.

Would it be a correct assumption that you purchased it from Lichtsinn?
