Just use a standard cam lock. You can buy them from most hardware stores. The lock diameter is usually 19mm and then you can buy the length projection that best suits your cab (usually between 16 and 19mm is about right).

Hi Jenova,
Here are a couple of pics of my Hankin, it looks like at some time it may have had some sort of locking bar but now just the standard lock with bent tail

I'm sorry. From your post it was a little unclear of what you were after. Your photo was of your machine, not a specific lock. I have never seen one of the locks you pictured on an arcade machine. Only standard cam locks. You could replace your one for a cam lock (they are only $7 or so but I'm sure you would already have some spare as a locksmith) othewise I guess you could just bend the latch on the back of your lock.

yeh cam locks would be perfect except the hole is massive i should be able to come up with something might hve to weld a peice of steel on to the tail peice to make it bigger
