Creation Window locks
I have managed to break off two of the tabs on my Creation windows locks.  It looks like replacement locks can be pop-riveted on.  Has anyone else had the problem...and found replacement locks??  It isn't likely those windows would open on their...

I think that Xtreme has replaced a few windows with upgraded ones from time to time.  You might give Jim or Jennifer a call...what a ya gotta loose?

Hi Brad & Christine,

If you have the same types of windows that I have in my '99 270, you can purchase the locks directly from Foretravel in either black or red.  I replaced five of mine in January using pop rivets.

One of our locks (2003) broke a few weeks ago and it should be similar to yours.  Pat called FOT and yes, they do have replacements, but only in red.  They cost about $7 each and the rivets are about $0.50 each.  For me, the rivets were worthless...

Bought new plastic locks from Foretravel and used a short bolt and nut to fasten with a drop of Loctite to keep nut from loosening.  Red & black are identical windows and open the same way. No need to use red lock, if you don't want.

LOL.  I see I'm not the only one to break them.  Frankly, I didn't even think that the "mother-ship" in Nac would carry such a little part.  Thanks, everyone.

It is not a lock but you can use a dowel as a temporary measure.
I use one to keep my closet sliding mirror from opening.
Or you can...

Here is the email I got in return.  Sounds like the rivets aren't needed anyway.  The pictures of the bolt/nut combinations look like an easier (and prettier) fix than using pop-rivets.

These are $5.00 plus shipping.
No, they do not come...

All the windows are the same, and can be used as emergency exits.  Foretravel just used enough red latches to meet legal requirements.  I...

Michelle- I was using that word in humour but appreciate your answer. I know you both only online, but know that you would not even consider trying to humiliate (or it to look that way) any one of us.
As I said "I am a newbie" but I feel like I...

Just a quick update to this 9 year old thread.  Foretravel no longer has the Creation Window latch/lock arms in stock but you can still get them from:

When I couldn't find one, I made one.  Aluminum bar stock from Lowes.  Hacksaw, file, drill, bent it in a vise with a hammer and then a little black spray paint.
