'65 Overlander Screen Catch?

I am looking to replace a missing part on my entry door. The part needed is something to attach the screen door to the entry door. I have the latch to hold the entry door open however need the latch for screen. The Pos were using a twist tie connected from the entry door to the screen door to hold the screen to the door. I have looked and cant seem to find what I need. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Screen door strap

On my '67 Safari the screen door was originally held to the entry door when needed by a 1" wide plastic strap that was held onto the entry door and the screen door by a snap attached to each door. The bases were pop riveted on each door and the snap tops were thru the plastic strap. I have replaced mine (partly still there) with a woven cloth strap. My pop rivets were still on the two doors making location of the strap easy for me to determine. The location on the screen door was thru the door knob cover (retangular opening) and onto the screen door cross member. It was mounted to the doors so that the screen stayed tight to the entry door when the door was held open by the exterior door clip. I added a second snap base to the entry door so that the strap has a place to be "stored" when the entry door is closed. I believe that was the original way that the plastic strap also was stored. I hope this helps you to locate where yours might mount. Happy Trails, Ed
