Default Ludwig Canister throne

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.....

I've tracked down what appear to be the back latch parts of those 60s Ludwig canister thrones. Will let you know if it's a perfect fit or not. Crossing my fingers!

I agree. Looks exactly like the one I got off eBay some months ago to replace the catch on mine that was badly rusted. I'd like to know if that's a perfect match. I wouldn't mind having a few spares.
