Does anyone know where I can procure these, or even what the proper name is? They are a very simplistic fastener to keep small doors closed. They came with a piece I purchased from Slovenia and work quite well. They look mass produced and not handmade. Any help would be appreciated.

These can be found in WallyWorld or anywhere they sell curtain rods. Would be easy to convert to what you show.

Ah, good idea Joe, thanks. That is definitely possible, but since I’m looking for 100 or so I would much rather find a place to purchase them if possible.

Hi. I have never seen it before. Are they really from Slovenia? Need to check out some comments about this hardware. Day by day I recognize here new solutions and get some experience.

Yes, they are really from Slovenia. Came as part of a beehive. They not only hold the doors closed but also used to keep screened dividers and entrance blocks in place.

Sad part is that I got delivery quicker from Slovenia that I can get stuff from California, go figure…....

To me they look like studs that have been flattened and bent.

What gives them away is that no real wood worker would use the screw going into the wood as a way to turn the shaft.

Using the threads of the shaft to turn back and forth will quickly wear out the wooden threads. It isn’t conducive to a lot of use.
A hook and eye would be more appropriate.
