parts for fiberglass tonneau cover

Had a new fiberglass cover installed in 2002 on my F150. One of the latches is broken and it no longer will lock. The place that I purchased it, is long gone and I can not find any name on the cover or key. Any suggestions on where I could find parts? figured another brand might be close enough were i could use their locks and latches.

Always bothers me when a place installs aftermarket accessories and fail to give the owners any or all associated paperwork

I would be happy to make latches for you that would be considered HD- I am in SoCal. I built my own cover after coming to the same conclusion that you have and have experienced. My latches are aluminum and build to 3x's the standard that most the latches are- no failures to date.

Pictures? I have a 1/4" striker plate attached to the bed side that is U shaped that the latch should catch.

If you can post a pic or two of your latches....I can typically build duplicate styles but made with 1/8" thick aluminum or steel- which is typically at least 3x's thicker than the material typically used. If I can also see the broken latch, then I can ensure against a potential repeat by either increasing the gauge of material, type of material or change the design.
