Basement Latches

I have a couple of messed up latches for the basement doors and I need to replace them. I found the part number, Southco c5-31-45, for the basement latches by doing a search. The posts I found were all pretty old, 08-10.

Has anybody bought any of these latches recently, if so where? I find prices in the posts of $10 - $30, but on line prices of up to $95. I'd like to pick up a couple and a spare also.

Thanks

I see quite a few listings of these latches. This place has it for $57 plain, $67 locking.

Per lane sales carries the latches for our coaches. They also have the rubber gasket which goes on the outer edge. I just bought some for several alpines so there was a quantity break on price. I think single price on locking was mid 30 dollar. You can check with them for minimum quantity for price break and may find someone else who may need some

Has anyone found chrome latches? I wouldn't mind replacing the ones on the rear engine hatch with chrome ones if I could find them.

I believe I saw chrome latches on the Southco site, don't hold me to it.

FWIW, I just bought 3 of the black C5-31-45 latches from Perlane Sales in Ohio. $134.75 total, delivered in 5 working days. You might check their site for chrome, the guy on the phone was very friendly and very helpful.

IIWM I would not put locking latches on the coach. I never lock mine as I figure I would rather replace anything taken from under the coach than try to have the doors repaired after someone pried them open.

Funny you mention that. I never lock mine in storage or at my house or when I'm at a campground. Not sure when I lock them come to think of it.
