They're a bit different, putting holes in the glass weakens the laminate so the catches are on a frame which runs along the bottom of the glass making it too wide to slide in the felt. So basically one channel is wider than the other.

I did look on the samba and noticed someone making repros but some of the reviews didnt fill me with confidence plus the cost so I would probably modify the ones I have if I cant find any
