Nylon locks on closet doors

Have you found any replacement of these white nylon locks that are on the closet doors. I don't know how many times I have cut my arm on these poorly designed closet door locks. If there was a way to replace them with something else it would be done.

The doors only need to be locked in place when traveling so; take the nylon locks off and throw them away. Make a couple of lock bars out of dowels to drop in the tracks when traveling and stand them in the back of the closet when parked.

This thread makes me feel better, as I have cut my arm many times also. At least I know it isn't all my clumnsiness. I have thought of filing the sharp corners off, but haven't gotten mad enough to do it yet.

HI Darbyjudy,
Think I of posted to this thread before but NOW I have found a place were you can get the lock like the ones that I have. They are great no more cutting arms and can be openned with just a finger. Holds secure while traveling. Made for RV Mirrored closet doors.
Will fit most mirror door manufactured in last fifteen years.
Can purchase from Revels Nationwide RV center. Phone # 800-473-8357
The mirrored door latch comes 2/package and includes all hardware.
Catalog Part number 31-0460 (LT85BK Mirrored door latch 2/card) $11.99

From one gal to another. I really hated the way the clear plastic things that come installed on the Coach closet doors. They always cut up my arms. The ones I listed above will replace the poorly designed closst locks. And vola no more cut arms.
Happy RVing.
Sniggles

Well I beleive I have the locks repaired so they won't cut my arm everytime I reach into the closet. I removed the plastic locks and took to the grinder and rounded off the sharp edges. So in time I will see if that did the trick.
