Are there any thetford guru's out there??...Does anyone know where I can buy the door fastner.It seats inside the door and clips onto the stub when the door is closed..I've checked the Thetford site but only the complete door is available...Some company must have supplied these clip's / fastner's to Thetford?

If not google 'thetford oven door catch' for other possible matches.

Just out of interest are you changing it because it is broken or because it comes open and rattles like a good'un.
If the latter you need a secondary clip to hold it shut!

The top hinge frame split & I fixed that by riviting a strip of aluminium so the plastic bush is now ok,& there is no movement in the door.I thought this may have been the cause of the door rattling?...One of the clip's tab's broke off,I guess because of wear & tear?...The door did sometimes open,I guess because of the damaged clip, but maybe the secondary clip is required?...can you advise where to find...appreciate your help Paul

Go to ebay and check out W4 metal turnbuckle 37811 sold by A&L leisure. That is what you need, sure some clever person will put in the link.
