What's the Catch?

Been working on my '57 Wanderer.

I am curious what the appropriate catch mechanism is to hold the entry/screen door in the open position. I have holes where some type of surface mechanism was mounted but that's all. I have not been able to find any photos on the web that allow me to zoom in enough to see what others have done. I'm thinking the plunger style that is found in Vintage Trailer Supply but was wondering if anyone had some photos or suggestions that could send me in the right direction. I'm "renovating" not "restoring" so I'm flexible.

Thanks

Thanks pbear. Based on the screw hole pattern this is probably not what was previously mounted but looks like a viable solution.

Much appreciated.

Possible that the latch was mounted directly on the skin, without the extension.
