Looking for a source for these. This one is on a CR N21 cab. Two per door.

This is very close to the sort of handle ("dog") used on some marine watertight doors and watertight hatch covers. Examples occasionally surface on eBay.

Looks like a swinging bar latch.

McMaster-Carr has one #1250a21

Not sure if its dimensions are quite right for your application.

They have another (1249a11) which also has an inside handle.

Looks like a winner!

Thanks for the heads-up.
