FOUND: Maker of Draw Latch For Windshield

Eberhard Manufacturing is the one who makes/made the draw latch for Amtech Turtle top.
Series 770.
The ones that came with my top are not correct.

Amtech Helmet product brochure has D-HMV122 as the kit part number with contact info: Paula Meyer at (800) 537-0762, militarysales@amtechcorp.com

Kascar has the kit part number listed but out of stock. Picture has draw type latch & clip. Zooming in shows a stamped part number, however illegible.

SouthCo has several pages in their catalog. Several are close. I didn't see one with a hole in the latch.

Rock; thanks; no, those aren't right.
I was trying to avoid Amtech as I heard they are hard to deal with when you are just an individual.
Plus, avoid paying $131 for $30 worth of clamps.
Maybe no choice.
