I'm looking for a BATTERY COMPARTMENT DOOR for a Crown Graphic Special 4x5. I know this is a pretty obscure part but I'm tired of using electrician's tape to hold things together. Any suggestions?

use to carry battery doors for Super Graphics for $40. Call them and ask for the Large Format department.

Alternative: Refer to http://www.southbristolviews.com/pics/Graphic/manual-pdf/servicemanual.pdf
Remove the top RF cover.
Accurately measure the battery door opening.
Get a piece of ABS plastic or acrylic, cut it 3/32 to 1/8 inch longer than the opening.
Trim the outside edge down so that the piece will fit under the edge of each side.
Correct fit will allow the door to slide to one side just enough to allow the other to clear the housing when installing or removing.
A piece of spring metal can be bonded to the back side to ensure a secure fit if needed.
