Screen door latch

I bought one of those cleaver late model latches that hold the screen door to the main door and also hold the screen closed when the main door is open. But it wont fit between the two doors! There is a simple little butterfly twist thing on the screen but it is always getting turned at the wrong time and preventing the door from closing. What did the '85 A/S M/H come with? What have you'll found that works well? May first attempt was a pair of ceramic magnets but that has not worked out well... so far... still thinking about that.

I'm sure mine doesn't have what was original. Just a sliding brass latch here. I'll grab a photo tomorrow when it's not quite so dark....

Thanks for the reply. I didn't want to reinvent the wheel if everyone was installing Alcoa aluminums. But in this case I guess I will be doing it my way. Still thinking magnets maybe the way to do it. If I have a major break through I'll be sure to post it.
