Basement Door Catch

I have lost a basement door catch off our 2001 GBM Cruisemaster. Efforts so far have failed to find a replacement. The catch is about 1/4"diameter and threaded on each end. Any help in finding a replacement is appreciated.

That "catch" looks like any old handle from the picture. Does something grab onto it?

If it doesn't have to be identical, I would think going to Home Depot you could find something of the same width so the handle would fit into the old bolt holes.

If all else fails, remove one from your MH, take it to a machine shop and have one made. Should take <1 hour to make one

It isn't as easy to find as you would think! I too thought Tractor Supply, nope, Lowes, nope, Ace, nope, ended uo using a more rounded "C", that is readily available.
It works fine. If you had to have one exactly that size you could go to any of the above, secure a piece of all-thread, bend to suit, or, a piece of roll stock, and a threading die, same process, and a little neater...I'll stick to the stock "C's" as long as they fit...

Probably easiest to find online. They are referred to as square U bolts.
