What the devil is the screen door latch suppost

to look like? Mine has never had one since before I purchased it. Bought the InlandRV screen door to outer door latch parts, but they make no sense?!? Someone please give me a photo and I'll just fabricate something from local parts.

thanx,

Mike

I don't have the camera right now, but will try to post a picture of how it works/looks tonight as I had to do this.

That looks like a an aftermarket latch, like they sell at Inland RV. I still have the original latch, but my exterior latch catch is busted.

That is a standard Airstream door hold back latch. It is still used for that purpose on the exterior of my coach too.

The old 1 piece slide latch was NLA a few years back, so this is the current solution. The newer trailers have a different spacing on the doors and use a Ventline door latch with an integral latch to hold the screen door closed.

There is also a slide latch that is available but it requires you to move it into position in order to use it. This way the door is automatically latched.

mine is an aluminum slider that locks over a tab sticking out of the screen door. It works ok, but often slips out of the tab. Seems like it has been messed with along the way by someone.
