Hardware needed

Can't seem to find replacement hardware for the original push to close latches for the fridge and freezer on my KK42. They have worn significantly, and have been on the "I'll get to it" list for some time. But the freezer latch actually broke at the handle pivot.

My wife will be back in the US for a few weeks soon, so may be possible to mail order. I can always "rig" something for awhile, but prefer to fix and forget. Just need something of similar style and size, I can handle modifying mount as the teak needs to be redone on the doors anyway.

Thanks for any leads

These guys may know at thing or two: kadeykrogen.com, or recommend a replacement. Good folks there.

Had a similar latch go bad. Took the latch off and the manufacture's name was stamped on the underside. I searched the name and found a replacement.

Have the info? If it's similar, that would work.

McMaster Carr has a few styles that look like they might work

Fisheries Supply in Seattle (on the Internet) has a tremendous stock and useful staff. I recommend sending them a photo via e-mail - they may help you.

Good Luck

Jeff

Good call. Search under Freezer latch or push-to-close latch.

I looked at mcmaster carr before posting. What they have is close, and would work as a last resort. The measurements just were off one way or another. I would prefer some more options before settling.

I emailed fisheries supply, thanks for the recommendation Jeff. Waiting to here back drom them.

Unfortunately Kadey Krogen has not been able to help me with anything I've asked for over the years. Fair enough I guess, since the boat is over 30 years old. I'm sure the support is better on the newer models....

Roseland Icebox Company - Authentic Electric Wooden Refrigerators Maybe? Seems they have a foundry as well so may be able to reproduce.
