Rubber hatch latch for Bigfoot?

Hello, We're never posted, thanks to you who are here, friendly and helpful!
We have a Series 2500RQB Bigfoot, Can't find new rubber hatch closures that hold down the exterior front cover over the forward window.
Camper World has larger ones and online sites neither give size info, nor answer our written requests for dimensions. Thank you for any help.

Check McMaster-Carr (mcmaster.com) and search under rubber latch. They give complete dimensions for all available latches.

replaced mine with airstream rock guard hold downs from out-of-doors mart part # 381021-01. I only used the rubber parts and threw the airstream brackets away. seemed a little pricy at the time but was afraid the old cracked ones would fail out on the road.

Thank-you, Orien. What a great help. And, the $6 is great. Just got an email from 'Bigfoot.com' saying they could fix us up for $15 each. We need 3.

We appreciate everyone who took the time to answer, more thanks!

Thank you Donna,
Called Chuck's apparent supplier, JR, talked to Todd. The latches listed are too short. I began this whole search by contacting Bigfoot for stock latches. W/shipping= very expensive. Hope to get by w/a little travel $$ left in my pocket.

Hi Chris:

I have the same model of trailer as you and went through this process a while back, ordering them from BF. Yup, very expensive route, and the parts are common. Good luck to you if you can score a cheaper source. I'd probably try harder the next time.

Some things I'd do in hindsight, measure the old device top to bottom and the orientation of the metal fastener. My unit was a couple hours away when I made the move, but if yours is accessible, you can do better on price with a bit of legwork.

Yes! Out of Doors Mart, about $10 each & they refunded the shipping surplus. Thank you OKE and everyone else who replied.
