Source for Latch (or is it a Catch?)

I was on a Friends boat recently. A Beneteau 47.7. The catches on the doors and drawers where held in place with a nylon catch system. The system worked like this, when you placed your finger in the teak pull hole. Your finger would push on a flat piece of the catch that covered the hole the catch would release and the door will open. Sort of a reverse elbow catch.

I would like to locate a source for these catches. Also has anybody had negative experience with the durability of them?

Seafarer in Ft. Lauderdale carries them, and can probably tell you what brand they are and from there you can search the net or buy from them. I tried to use them, but the admiral wouldn't hear of it. I had to go with the push button style, which work equally as well. They are at No affiliation with them, except as a happy customer.
