Screen door

how is your screen door held closed? Mine has a small aluminum piece that looks like an afterthought which clips under a slide.
Always coming loose, causing the doors to swing seperately when opened.

Alan, mine has the same slider that goes over the aluminum bracket that is welded to the screen door. I am planning on replacing it with the same spring loaded catch that is used as a door hold back on my coach. It will retain the door while closed and assure me that when I open the outer door the screen will go with it.

From Inland RV's site, but they are available at any Airstream dealer:

Latch, Plastic, Main Door Holdback, Used with Part #18781 (Note: Parts #18777 and #18781 are now used for the screen door to entrance door latch. You may have to fabricate a shim)

I saw this thread when looking into screen door latches for my74. Will Inland's work for a 74? I am left with a plastic catch on the side wall, and part of the latch on the screen door itself. Thanks for any info.

Debbie,

If you can post a picture we may be able to help. There are just too many variables when it comes to the screen door parts past and present.

Brett & Alan,
Mine is the same "tab with slider" setup. I've been thinking about installing a spring button behind it to place a little pressure on it keeping it closed.

It tried bending the tab back a little but there was too much of a gap to make up for. Let me know if you come up with something clever here.

hey guys i have cussed my screen door for three of four years. one day about 3 months ago i decided i was going to fix that piece of ui093 i took a pair of line mans pliers and squeezed the rear end of the slide . wolla it worked problem solved . if you do that mod be careful you could ruin the slider it doesnt take much to tighten the slider up.
dont be bending the tab on the door unless you have a friend who welds aluminum.
