Latches for 38 open rod locker
My 2001 38 open has port & starboard rod lockers with latches.  Has anyone replaced theirs, what is the source for these larches.

Best regards & Happy New Year

I believe they are Southco 62-42-101-2; lift & turn compression latch. I've found them on eBay. Tried both polished, brushed, and black. The brushed seem to rust out the fastest, polished is the best. I finally coated them in a lanolin goo (forgot the exact name) that is thicker than vasoline; seems to be doing a better job keeping them from seizing.
