If you want something similar check out Molex-SL, the connector box has two contacts that grip the male pin form the sides. Hansen's "latching polarized connectors" are actually Molex SL. They don't have the three position non polarized housing but they can be found on Digikey. They use 2.54mm spacing and are fully compatible with 0.1 pin headers.

Three position plain housing here:
The non polarized three position housing is MOLEX 50-57-9003

Overall this connector family seems superior to Mini-PV for our application, there even seems to be reasonably priced budget tools specifically designed for it. The only problem would be the shroud around the male connector, on the Molex SL it just has bare male pins in the same housing. However the three position non polarized housing might fit in a Futaba type or universal shroud (not a JR type though due to the bevels at the corners) The housing also seems to be slightly longer than the Mini-PV one though I can't be sure. It's designed to mate with 0.1 pin strips though so it should work.
