Default Help- I lost a part of a sliding door latch

We have several of these simple latches on some of our large sliding doors. On one of them the "pin" that moves and locks it is missing. Grandkid ????
I need a replacement.

Does anyone know what these simple latches are called or who makes them? House built 1984.

take one off and see if there are any markings stamped on the inside, might give you something to search. Maybe take it to a hardware store.

To me it looks like it is made to fit that door. I don't know of any lock supplier that would have one that has the offset to go over that raised part of the wood like this one does. I suggest contacting the door company. It is probably one of their locks.

If you have a matching pin take it to a welding shop and see if they can help you.
