HELP FINDING OVER CENTRE CATCH FOR GTC TOP CAP

Post by Dennis Nicholas » Wed Mar 07, 2018 11:40 pm

Hi all. I am trying to find suitable over centre catches for fixing a top cap on the GTC to compliment the tonneau/draft screen. It has to be one that fits the earlier hood fastening tongue and slot. The hook of the leaver hooks onto the front of a slotted piece on the screen rail and the hook leaver goes over centre to tension.
After an extensive search on line the most suitable and what looks to be exactly what is required is
http://www.spep.com/Latches/Draw-Latche ... 120BK.html
But that is in America as you can see.
Anyone out there seen anything the same, or very nearly the same in UK?

See the tonneau cover/draft screen manufacture thread earlier. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=37392#p432352
