What door latch did we provide, since you mention an aluminum frame?

Good Morning, p/n 18693 the black (2) slide parts, the white tab and spring. A better definition...the aluminum " within " the door where the above parts are attached. After finally getting the slide part properly ? assembled cannot get the slide pop riveted to stay in place. H E L P

The bottom black plate using the shim if necessary is riveted in place first.

Then the latch is assembled.
