Exclamation Where can I find these??? (Aluminum storm door hardware)

If you can believe it, I have been looking for over two years for this item. I've been to every hardware store in my area without any luck. They only sell non-locking versions of this item. I've called tons of locksmith stores and suppliers and they keep refering me to to the big box hardware store. Surely there must be some place that manufactures these! I am in Canada and found the name of a manufacturer (Ideal Security) but they not longer make the brushed brass type that I am looking for, on polished aluminum.

Cut and paste the links for images of the lock I need. Thanks

Ah HAH!!

Hi, As a Locksmith, these are hard to find. Have you tried an RV Dealer? Or a Marine Hardware store? You'ld be supprised what you can find. Other than that, you may have to go to a Mobile home Manufacturer for them. Hope this helps you out.

Looks like the brass finish is trouble. Wright makes similar products but nothing in brass in your style.

Hi Paul
Ideal Security is the manufacturer that came to mind as soon as I looked at the pictures you provided. Ilco might have a similar product too.
I'll check out our suppliers tomorrow and let you know what I find out.
Brass finish may be a problem, but I know of a couple of lockshops who have some old "Ideal" stock laying around so I'll check with them as well.
Canada you say? Ontario by chance?

I checked our suppliers and had no luck with a brass finish storm door handle like yours.
I'm still waiting for a buddy in Toronto to get back to me though so all is not lost just yet.
