Outside Entertainment Center Latch

Our outside latch on the entertainment center door is not aging as gracefully as us  ;D 

Its getting a blotched mottled faded (pick your favorite term) to the surface.  Has anyone found a replacement / source for these?

Thanks!

Maybe you could remove it and then spray paint it or use some POR15 on it?  That would return it to its black finish and be pretty inexpensive.  It certainly can't make it look worse than it does now  ;D

Did some looking around, and if it is a Southco part, attached is the drawing.

Black
  • C5-21-35 = Standard Key Lock, Black Zinc, Steel Hardware
  • C5-21-36 = Standard Key Lock, Black Zinc, Stainless Hardware
  • C5-31-35 = Shuttered Key Lock, Black Zinc, Steel Hardware <- could keep grime out of the lock since its exposed otherwise
  • C5-31-36 = Shuttered Key Lock, Black Zinc, Stainless Hardware <- could keep grime out of the lock since its exposed otherwise

Chrome
  • C5-21-312 =  Standard Key Lock, Chrome, Steel Hardware
  • C5-21-313 = Standard Key Lock, Chrome, Stainless Hardware
  • C5-31-312 =  Shuttered Key Lock, Chrome, Steel Hardware
  • C5-31-313 = Shuttered Key Lock, Chrome, Stainless Hardware

Looks like you can find C5-21-312 in some web searches, be nice to find a source for the C5-31-313 since it has stainless hardware and a key shutter to keep the internals clean.

Looking on E-Bay, they all seem to be listed under "Compression Latch With Lock C5-21-35" ... have to look at the pictures and get the chrome one, and make sure from the seller that it is Chrome and not Zinc.

Late to the party but 303 will usually work to bring back the black.  Squirt a small amount on your index finger and rub it in.  Let it dry and repeat.  You may have to do this several time depending on how faded the latch is.

Thanks, I'll will  give 303 a shot at restoring the finish and see how it goes.  If not then Ebay here I come :D
