 Post subject: Minerva Tropic Master: front door latches

I recently purchased a nice Minerva Tropic Master. Chassis is very clean, appears to be in original condition with no evidence of any prior service work. The metal cabinet is in good condition with one exception: the two latches for the front door panel are missing. The spring-wire retainers for these latches on the cabinet itself are still intact.

I am sure I could find (or fabricate) some appropriate replacement latch hardware, but the problem is that I don't know what the originals looked like. If anyone has one of these Tropic Masters and could describe these latches, or better yet post a photo, it would be much appreciated.

They are dzus fasteners, the ones with "wings" in pictures.

Thanks Bill J. for your response.

I am having great difficulty in locating the "winged" dzus fasteners in 1/4" diameter to fit my Minerva.
Does anyone have a suggestion for a source?
