I'm asking for help in either purchasing a replacement or any suggestions to repair a door restraint. This is a rod that has a bent end and a threaded end, I snapped the threaded end trying to remove the nut. It came from a Lawson Model 5011 medicine cabinet I'm refurbishing. I'm not sure what it is called, sliding rod door restraint.

Could you post a picture what you have?

Do you know of a motorcycle shop in your area? That looks like a motorcycle spoke. Maybe you could take the bar in your picture to a motorcycle shop, they may have a spoke laying around, you could buy.

I was looking at everything to use at a big box store today. Everything I come up with I most likely will have to create a thread for a nut. Thanks for the input.

Of course that would be the thing to do if you have the right tools. Good luck.

There are many different types of door restraints—are you looking to replace in kind, or is another type OK?

I was looking to replace in kind but may need to use something else.
