doohickey or duct tape

no matter what, if ya gotta move it, make sure the door cannot open-even if it looks like a "redneck deadbolt!"

Andy was right on it (Post #4). I hear he sells the part also.

Thanks for fixing that link! I really like the door stopper idea, simple! I glued the broken piece back onto the striker, I didnt want to shell out for a new one and have to break it again if I got stuck inside. So I'll make a stopper on the outside for when it's moving, since the super glue might loosen. Thank you!!

I bought a rivet gun on Amazon for less than $20. Rivets can be found in a hardware store. The drill bit for 1/8" rivets is a #30 drill bit, not a 1/8" bit. It is pretty easy if you have any experience with drills. The door may be out of adjustment and possibly from sagging or loose hinges. That's more likely than a problem with the striker plate.

Check to see if the inner door handle is tight on the shaft. There is a screw on the bottom side. Otherwise I would say that your lock mechanism is worn and will need some tweeking at the very least. If you are mechanically inclined, you could remove it to see what the problem is. I did mine and made the necessary repairs to get it to work better. Good Luck!
