0.50 cent regular pull handles, a staple gun, and dot velcrow tucked out of view to keep cabinets/drawers closed?

Hi: Try Vintage Trailer Supply in Montpellier Vt. They have some pinch catches for $4.95 ea. that fit 3/8ths thick doors... Just like the ones used on our '77 Boler.

$3.54 here: RV Parts Outlet - Tualatin, OR

Just remember, S&H adds to the cost too.

You might try Rufkhars, a commercial cabinet maker's hardware supply. I just ordered six of their (Casita-like) push-button latch/knob units for $7 each (at the bottom of the web page), and they have lots of other options ranging from $4 up to $30 per latch.
