Looking for a glove box latch

Hey all.. anybody has a spare glove box latch for a stock glove box? I just need the little metal part that goes in the box and the door latches too. I can't find them to buy so I was going to try to fab somthing, but figured someone here must have one laying around..

Thanks!

I've got a restored glovebox door complete with the pushbutton and the latch part that attaches to the dash I'm planning to put on eBay soon. You might not need the door but it is refinished in black/gray Hammerite paint and would probably go well with almost any color dash. You could remove the pushbutton and use it on your door or use this door as is. $20 plus shipping (that's cheaper than a new latch :-).

PM me if interested.

Thanks, but I'm only looking for the little metal clip... actually the one in the pic you sent looks different than what I thought it was supposed to look like. Actually looks easier to fab than what I was thinking.

there are two types, the one above, for non locking doors, and the bent wire kind for the locking type. Not interchangable that I know of.

Jeff, your glovebox door looks exactly like mine...same color I ended up doing my entire dash. I think it makes a great accent to the jeep....

OK, must be the locking type latch you're looking for. That one is made of bent rod instead of sheet metal.

That's why I don't need this one any more, I replaced it with the locking type, which is a different door, knob and latch.

If anyone else wants this one, PM me...

I thought I needed the bent rod type, but it's not a locking door so I guess I only need the sheet metal type instead. Wasn't sure how to fab the bent rod, but the sheet metal looks much easier. Jeff, since you already have one, I'm sending you a PM.
