Screen Door Rattle

The AS is going great (full timing for a while) but my only real issue is a rattling screen door. It seems that the rivets are not tight to the frame and when I close the door the push plates rattle really loud. Is there anything that can do to abate the rattling aside from removing the push bars and re-installing the push bars with some sort of damper between the metal parts?

My 77 Argosy had a bad rattle from the screen door. The aluminum panels in it we're loose. I filled the gap with Parbond, and after it dried the rattle was gone.

Thanks for the suggestion. Is this something you get at a home repair store? Is it a bonging/gap filling material?

vintage trailer sells it. It is a leak sealer that is used to fill small cracks.
