Lock on front of A4000

The key for my lock was probably lost years ago, and as I like everything to be complete/working I'd like to replace it. I assume this is just a generic lock that all desktop PCs had back then, but I can't find any online. Whenever I search for something like 'desktop PC lock' I just get those anchor locks. does anybody know what they're called, or better still where to get them?

Search for 'keylock switch'.
I found this, among others:

Great thanks, easy to find when you know what they're called! Does anyone know if these are a standard size, and if the Amiga uses that standard size?
