body catches HELP

Hi all, looking at the different body catches around.
I have seen these types I beleive are SPF are they available anywhere in the UK or can they come from SPF ?
Or is there preferrable types. The ones I have are stainless but there not the best looking
Any assistance appreciated
Cheers

Re: body catches HELP

How about these reproductions, featuring the letters ' PRESS '
correctly in raised lettering, as per originals.

Painstakingly copied from original set

Re: body catches HELP

We can supply the Hartswell type latches SPF uses. Also, Fran Kress has had them made as original and I can put you on to him to supply.
