Has anyone tried to find the parts to rebuild cabinet latches ?

They use a (roughly) 5/16" ball bearing, a small spring and an odd little screw with no shank. I've tried to find these parts on the Internet to no avail.

Has anyone done this ?

Thanks,
Sam Christo

Thanks for the replies. I did check out McMaster but could not find what I needed. I did, however, find some $2 replacements on eBay. I just wasn't using the "friction latch" in my searches.

Thanks again,
Sam

One of the best sources in the US for odd and sundry small parts used to be "Small Parts Co." and Amazon bought them out about two years ago. Still available, either directly or through Amazon. Little springs, ball bearings, the hardest part is figuring out what they are called in order to search for them.
