Round shower door retainer clip broken, need to replace

Hi All,
I have a 2012 Georgetown 351ds that has a broken retainer clip that holds the 2 pieces of the round shower door closed while traveling.
Any ideas where I should start to find the parts? It looks like it is riveted on there which will make it fund to replace

Thanks!

My retainer clip broke as well. I went to the Home Depot and simply bought a C clamp. Works like a charm.

We broke ours off too. In a pinch my wife used a hair clip that worked just fine. Sorry the pic is sideways.

Would never have thought of using a hair clip, just proves you learn something new everyday, if you keep an open mind.

Good ideas, thanks!
Would like to fix it correctly or improve it at some point though.

Have you tried looking on the CampingWorld website? Seems like a common part. Then cross part from Amazon for perhaps a better price and shipping.

I ordered replacements through my dealer. Inexpensive. There may be an easier way, but I had to take the doors off because the clips slide in and you have to somewhat disassemble the door to get them in. I did not have to drill rivets.

Found at Home Depot

I found a shower like mine at Home Depot. I wrote the company, and they mailed me the replacement part for free. Mine may not be the same brand as your. I was very impressed.
