Contact Yaquina143 on this board. Reading a previous post, I think that he makes them.

I see your from Alabama . Are you Echota perhaps ?

Recently I made my own lock with some guidance from a couple other folks . Here is a picture of it .
If you interested I would be glad to go over the steps . They are pretty simple .
This one is real hair but one could do the same with the other type if they so wished .
Real hair is about twice the cost of the synthetic

Go to womans hair store where they sell hair weaves, most have a ton of different shades to choose from and come pretty cheap. Also a tack shop (horse feed and equipment shop) has horse hair that can be used for this.
Beo,

I made mine (though much less robust in size compared to the Captain), by taking a thick piece of elkhide, and covering one side with clear silicone caulk. I used this instead of rubber based shoe-goo and recommend it as some people react to latex based stuff.

Then I did as mentioned above, and got a woman's hair extension and took it apart, fastening strands of hair to the side of the elkhide using the same clear, silicone caulk. So I had one side with hair and one side with silicone.

I attched it to my shaved scalp with theatrical spirit gum. That's the stuff that keeps beards and other bits of fake makeup parts on actors under bright, hot, stage lighting, so it will adhere when a person sweats.

Go to Goodwill, buy a long haired wig, cut the back part out where a scalplock would sit on your head. Apply a good base coat of spirit gum and let it dry. Then apply spirit gum both to the scalplock, and your head, press and hold.
