Early boxcar door latches

Brian Kopp

I know the Grandt Line/SJ 5001 kit has a door with latch attached, but for those that scratch build early box cars what do you use to make your own latches? They are not in the Tichy 5070 kit either.....
I was unsure about some instructions, like Trout Creek, suggesting the Grandt Line 5166 reefer latch would work.
