Hood cam latch replacement source

I do know camco makes some but i cannot find this one on their site or on amazon. They are selling a 5/8 and 7/8" variant. I need 1 1/8" offset for the barrel and then the part that actually latches the hood has an offset of approximately 5/8". The camco ones have an offset of ~1/4" at that part. I'd reuse mine but it's pretty work hardened over the years of being bent back and forth. I could weld it to help but I don't think that's the solution I want to end with. Any input would be appreciated

Thank you. Unfortunately they also only have that 1/8" offset on the metal retaining bar (The part that rotates) and I need 5/8" offset there.

Try JRProducts:

https://jrproducts.net/product-categories/locks/

Also could you utilize a longer barrell and have a smaller offset on the lock blade?

I was on that site earlier this morning looking but they don't have the offset I need.
Yes I could but the longest barrel I've seen is 1 1/8" which is what I have now

That bar is only 1/4" offset. I need a 5/8" offset.

I did thank you. Unfortunately they only one they have that is even close is a straight , not offset arm. Also the arm is about 1/2 the length I need it to be at 1.250" vs. 2.900" that I need

OK take a look at this onehttps://www.amazon.com/Camco-44333-T...04230530&psc=1

Camco 44333 seems to meet your requirements

Unfortunately that is wrong is every dimension. Above in the diagram I showed my dimensions. I need an offset at the rotating arm of 5/8" (This is 1/4"). I need a length of said rod of 2.900" (This is 1.675") and I need a body length of 1.125" (This is .675"). While CAMCO says they have a 1 1/8" body length their website only shows their 5/8 and 7/8" as produced (Or at least for sale) currently.

https://www.rvmaster.com/products/rv-cam-lock/ says they can custom make cam locks. Apparently the latch arm may be ordered separately.


Another possibility: https://www.rvpartscountry.com/RvCom...geLocksLatches

Thanks, ill use that as a last resort as I assume that'll be expensive. I did weld mine up today and put it back together but the cylinder body is cast alum. and the tab is broken off to stop it from rotating 360 which is annoying but doesn't prevent it from functioning. I don't have the ability to TIG sadly. I can barely MIG actually.

FWIW, I used search term, travel trailer cam latch instead of lock.
Hopefully rvmaster does not have a minimum quantity.
