I can't tell exactly what is broken. The handle turns, but nothing happens, so something inside that plate is broken. The plate is riveted to the backing plate and I can't even see or tell where the handle mounts to it (no visible screws). There are no screw heads on the outside of the handle either, just round, smooth heads (like a small carriage bolt head).

Is this what you're looking for? Are you trying to repair what you have or get something new that is close to what you already have?

I'll try to get a pic later (it's pouring to be heat hell right now).

Well, if I can repair it, that'd be great ( suspect though I won't be able to). If not, then a similar replacement. Barring that, I'm thinking something simpler, like a pair of latch types, one in each bottom corner (the door is hinged at the top and opens upwards).
