Screen Door Frame Latch?

The screen door on my 71 has the latch that attaches it to the main door (i.e. the sliding mechanism), but what it doesn't have is a latch to secure it to the door fame (i.e. close it) when the main door is open. Does anyone know if there is a replacement part (I have seen 1 photo of this part on a later model, it was some spring loaded roller looking thing) for it, or some other DIY solution?

You must use the main door holdback and it's housing, that was used on the 74 models and up. That will hold the scrren door to the entrance door.

The original black plastic latch has been obsolete for a number of years.

Nevermind -- found a very similar post this morning with the info that I needed, although I still couldn't actually find the part to order, I now know what I'm looking for: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f179...tch-67971.html
