Bluebird luggage and battery door latch hardware?

Can anybody recommend a place that I can order new latch hardware? The components on there now are Cleveland brand.

Here's some pictures of the latches. The slam catches are connected to the latches by the cable.

Our 2014-2017 Bluebird charter buses have that exact same hardware on the understorage doors.

I imagine you could walk into your Bluebird dealer and order those parts but it won't be cheap

Looks like the latch is made by Cleveland hardware:

This appears to be handles and hardware that can be had perhaps Northern Tool or Tractor Supply? It's not exclusive to BB buses, many storage boxes use identical hardware.

I've been looking at that sort of hardware from Austin Hardware. You can get the PDF version of their paper catalogs on their web site.

Let us know what you come up with... I have 9 new basement/storage doors needing hardware this coming winter and still haven't picked anything!
