Screen door catch

Does someone have a picture of the screen door latch in the closed position? Mine is missing and when you want to leave the main door open the screen will not stay closed.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks

I think Airstream has been using the same latch for many years, although maybe not as far back as 1986. The one I have just replaced is plastic part that has a propensity to break in the middle. I got one from Airstream for about $18—it comes with all the parts and, interestingly, there's a sheet of paper inside that says it's not for Airstreams. The part that holds the latch in place has four rivets—they have to be drilled out. I replaced two with short machine screws and double nutted them and two with rivets.

I understand Inland RV sells the latch alone for around $7. I found that out after I ordered the entire assembly from Airstream. A local RV store sells the assembly for around $22.

No photos, sorry.

Richard (azflycaster) has a good photo on another thread (http://www.airforums.com/forums/f453...tml#post636413) that shows all the latches involved with the screen door. Click on the photo to enlarge it. Sounds to me like you need the white roller latch at the top in the photo. This is the one that holds the screen closed while the main door is open. The bolt just below and to the right holds the screen door to the main door. The aluminum and black catch below and on the far left of the photo holds the main door fully open. All these are available.

Thanks for the Pics of the latches, they helped a lot. Andy at Inland RV has the parts I need and will order them from him.
