Take a look at our 91-063M and 91-064M latches. Could these be what you need? If you also need the spring, look at our 91-003.
A quick learner from lumberton says:
Yes, I believe that is the size and I found a matching spring. I appreciate your help.

Additional comment: the spring latch that I have is only 1 and 11/16 inches long vs. 1 13/16. Would I still be able to use it?
Also, if I have the springs and they are intact, could I just order the latches and use the old springs?

You don't necessarily need to replace the springs if yours are okay. However, if you do need to replace them, I don't believe the added length will be a problem. It would add more pressure to the latch. In the worst case scenario, you can always cut the spring a little.
