I'm surprised. I always thought those were "standard equipment" on compartment doors. Looks like another "corner" cut by manufacturers. Some accountant must have figured if they eliminated that item, they could save $5.00 (including labor) on a trailer; and if they sold 1,000 trailers... Meanwhile, you're inconvenienced by having to hold the door open with your head, shoulder, etc. while you reach inside to grab something.
On my one compartment door, I have this problem due to a design problem- I can't open the compartment door fully when my water hose is attached.
Actually, I just replaced both of my latches (one broke the previous summer) this summer after 13+ years of service. I should have done it sooner but I was having a hard time justifying buying something online that was going to cost me more to ship it than its purchase price. However, I found them in a campground store while I was "out and about".
