Replacement Rung Locks for Old Extension Ladder

Hoping someone might help me identify a point-of-contact to purchase replacement rung locks for my very, very old aluminum extension ladder. Unfortunately ladder has NO identification whatsoever, and I'm hoping the attached photo might help you help me.
Thanks in advance

I don't know but suspect no replacement parts are available. Ladder manufactures don't want the liability that would come with repairing a ladder. For the most part all those hooks are the same but you have a round rung ladder. It might be 50 yrs since they were made. I know I haven't seen or used one in about 30 yrs.

I don't think any ladder manufacturer will sell you parts. Product liability is so high that I'm sure they will tell you to destroy the ladder. They can't risk the liability of someone repairing a safety item on one of their products.

There called "ladder flippers".
Google it lots of sites come up.
And yes you can buy new ones, but I agree as old and light duty as that ladder is it's not worth it.
