Topic tags/keywords: hardware latch

I’m trying to find latches like these. Note the long throw on the top of the crate with the 90-degree turn on the front. Amazon searches have me coming up empty.

a quick google search using “crate latch” “german crate latch” “ww2 crate latch” found these, I have no idea of the legitimacy of these companies or the availability of the latches. There appears to be a few importer websites that show them as well, but I would trust those even less.
