cabinet hardware

My '81 bigfoot has original cabinets and cabinet hardware. The drawer pulls are quite ugly and the cupboards don't have any pulls but a button you press from underneath when you lift the cupboard up. What is existing is irrelevant because I am considering new cupboard doors and drawer fronts. At the very least, if I don't get doors/drawer fronts, then new drawer pulls are still a MUST. What kind of cabinet hardware is available that locks the cabinets so nothing falls out when driving?

Thanks in advance for your feedback and ideas!

Sounds like what your cupboard doors have is what was originally [now missing] on our Uhaul cupboards. The closet door has the latch but the cupboards and storage compartment latches are gone and I can't find replacements. As a quick fix just before we left on a 3 week trip I put an eye-bolt at each end of the cupboard doors and slid a wood dowel through to keep them shut while traveling. It was that or not put anything in them, so the dowel was the answer. Bob

Bob, these look a lot like the cabinet latches on my UHaul.

Tom. Thanks for that link, you apparently have the later model trailer that had the compartment liners from the factory. If you have noticed in the repair manual, the earlier Uhauls didn't have the liners, they were added later to make cleaning easier. Ours had a latch that just caught on the edge of the opening and was operated by pushing in at a small opening on the edge of the cupboard or closet door. Our closet door still has that latch. That latch wouldn't work after the cupboard liners were installed so apparently they were removed from our camper. We did see another Uhaul that must have been a later model as it had the latches like you're showing, they go through a hole in the door, and latch into a slot in the liner. I'm kind of hesitant to go making a hole in the cupboard doors to install that type latch so may just stay with the halfa$$ed fix I made with the wood dowel, it keeps them shut when traveling and is removed when we are set up on a site. I looked at latches at Lowes but didn't find anything I liked. Bob

Latches, bezels and knobs

I have recently assembled a line of latches, bezels and knobs that are the same as the ones installed by Casita and Sea Ray boats. Send me a PM and I will send you a brochure with all of our products.
