Need '73 Safari Screen Door Pic

Could someone please post a pic of their screen door? Just bought a 73 Safari and the PO made some handyman changes to the main/entry screen door & latch. I'm guessing something broke and he couldn't find parts? I would like to try and undo the fix but have no clue what I need.

Post a photo of what you have, since the original screen door to main door latch has not been available for over 10 years. A different holdback must be used.

Yes, that for sure is a "home brew".

But if it works, then so be it.

Unfortunately, the other way the holdback can be done, is to use the same latch that holds the entrance door, to the shell.

Many owners have made that change.
