Pocket Door Security Strap

I have a 2011 Rockwood 8317ss that has upholstery security straps that clasp around the pocket doors to hold them open and in place when you are traveling. One of them has broken and I am trying to replace it. Does anyone know where you can order these online? The only ones I can seem to find are the cheap clear plastic button snap kind. I would prefer to replace with original equipment if possible since I have 3 pocket doors and a relatively new rig and would like for them to all match.

Thanks in advance.

Try your local upholstery shop.
I had to rebuild my whole assembly.
The track was not secured well deep within the pocket.
That was fun to fix.
Anyway, my local upholstery man was able to make me a new strap and he even was able to resuse the hardware (the reinforced hole) from the old one.
Mine was just a piece of cloth webbing.

The stock stuff seems like its junk. I dont have a pocket door, but I have been in enough campers to know what I do not like.

Id second going to an upholsterer to see if you can get something nicer and longer lasting.
