Bedroom closet sliding door latch

Our mirrored sliding closet door won't stay closed because the plastic holder the latch goes into is broken. Where can I get a couple of these latches, this is the latch which is screwed to the side of the closet.

I've noticed that camping world has a lot of these types of parts or generic versions.

Why don't you post a photo of the latch? Use the other door so we can see the whole assembly rather than the broken one.

I have those UGLY mirrored closet doors. The latch failed and the replacements where rather high so I was suggested this;
http://www.safetymatters.com/bigimage.cfm?sku=382
Very easy to install, BUT I did have to replace the double sided tape with the better 3M brand. Works Great!
When using the door it lays flat against the door letting the outer door slide past it. When ready to travel just close the doors and flip the bottom up. Keeps the doors from opening.

I'd LOVE to replace those doors with luvered dark cherry doors....Any body ave any suggestions where to look?

"Rusty years".......Northwest RV Supply, in Oregon is an outlet for older Monaco parts. They use to buy left over equipment and stock a lot of stuff you might need. You can also still call Monaco parts. They're still in business.

Southco? If so, they can be had for about 5 bux. They come in two strengths and are different colors dependent on strength. One strong latch.

Mine are those clear plastic thingys. I bust a couple a year so always carry extras. I believe I got my last batch at CW.

Use this from The Home Depot. I put these on the bottom edge of my door by the track. Drilled a hole into the bottom rail track. That way when the Barrel Bolt is extended, it drops into the bottom rail. Door does not move and cannot come unlocked. I did not use the Barrel Bolt catch as the bolt drops into the track. You could also install them at the top if you didn't want to bend over.

I believe this is the latch you are referring to.

I too despise those plastic latches! In addition to the breakage problem, they're also hard to release, and I've scraped my arm on them many times.

Someone on here suggested using adjustable shower rods (40 to 70 inches) to lay in the tracks at the bottom while traveling. I got mine at Wal-Mart, about $7.95 I think. They work great!

After seeing this video:

is slim, almost invisible, and out-of-the-way, so you don't scrape your arm on them getting things in and out of the closet.

One of the simplest (and best) upgrades I've done on my RV!
