Closet slider latch

....anybody know of any good latches for the closet sliding doors? I've tried two, one didn't fit (door too thick) other one just breaks.

I have these on my closet mirror doors and almost every cabinet door.

Each closet door has two latches and they do break occasionally but they hold the doors in place.

I installed the same latches on all of the drawers and bedroom sliders for the mirrors as Windward, but you need the 5lb pulls.

I use the same latches -- 2 per door -- but also put a cut-to-length dowel in the bottom tracks of the frame to ensure the siders don't open when traveling.

I've got some of those, but was looking for something that doesn't break as easy.

1/4" Round Dowel cut to length for the slider bottom rail.

Here is a safety latch I have used on 2 coaches over 8 years.
When it is flipped out both doors are secured at the same time. It's is not noticeable when you put it on the bottom of the door.
You also don't have the frustration of looking for the dowel, you know put somewhere ... (which was my first solution to this issue)
