Default Louver hold downs- where to get

Hey Team-
Looking for latches to keep my louvers down. My car came with only one, and it was quite worn out. Looking for simple clean (hidden) latches like the originals....any thoughts? Mine were small spring loaded trigger-flipper-things pop riveted onto the louvers at the edges, and a little L-bracket on the body.

Thanks in advance!

Pick one that's closest and go for it. Never really saw any one latch that was "OE", so you'll have to come up with it on your own! I like the ones from Aircraft Spruce, though...

Mine came with a roller latch to hold the louver down, which I will need to replace at some time. One side is missing. Not sure if thats oem but thats what it came with. I was also looking at ball latches as another option. This is kind of what it looks like. There are all kinds of styles and shapes out there

That's close to what mine has, but the factory simply drilled a hole for the ball to slot into. Nice, huh?
