WTB Pantry Latch

Where can I get a new latch for the pantry?

SMB store: Black Pantry Latch

or

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Southco-Natura...o+pantry+latch

Check panel thickness - different sizes on Amazon.

Damn, that was fast. I feel like an idiot for not finding it.

Thanks!

Glad to help. I already had them bookmarked because the one in my old van was broken and my pantry would slide open if I hit even a slight bump in a corner.

Strange that the SMB store is cheaper than Amazon - never seen that happen before.

I like the pantry. However my significant other, also named Francesca, does not take directions well. She does not close it and I take off only to have it slam shut around a turn. She slams it shut when she does shut it etc. etc. It is not worth fighting over so I will buy 2. I do have some ripped out holes on the other end, but we will just go bigger and bigger. And of course I will always travel with a door stop just in case.

Haha...oops! Edited.

So, is it just xcnick and me, or does anyone else have a significant other named Francesca and also experience open 'panty' issues?

Certainly pleasant when such a latch fails to hold such a place closed.

Same link I posted above I think. Yep, if you've got Amazon Prime, go that route. With shipping, it'll be close to $25 from SMB to keep your panties where you want them.
