Ludwig Canister throne
 
5 Attachment(s)
One of you Vintage Drum Gurus sent me a canister throne top to reupholster. I have been on a mission to find the correct catches for this. I found the exact Brass Draw Catch for it, but I cant find the hook catch for it. I did find something that might work though. Does anyone have one? Here's a few pics of what we're looking for.

There are countless latches, hasps, and catches. If it werent for the badge location you could use two of the draw catches.....The one I found is very similar to the original. It also has the galvinized finish like the original. Ill send it to ya anyway.....

poppy, is your latch brass one gold or silver?

your photo looks silver - the product listing on the website looks gold

Here are pics of the silver / zinc hook type latch on the oppisite side. This is what we are looking for. This throne belongs to Vintagemore2000
