rear tire carrier latch?

I am building a rear bumper with a swing away tire carrier. I need to find a source for a heavy duty latch to keep it closed. I like the type that Rockware uses, but can't figure out where to get one.

Trailer repair and build place or farm supply. The trailer guys seem to have all kinds of cool stuff.

Thank you for the web address. I ordered a latch. I will post pics when I get it finished. I got the bumper cut out, the tire carrier cut out and the hinge system installed. Just have to get a latch and finish all the accessories.

Those latches are awesome. I put them on my trailer but don't seem to have any pictures of them.

If you want the exact latch that Matt uses on his rear bumpers:
