The same would then apply when both doors are closed. You could then add a metal slide latch inside to keep the pets from pushing the screen door open.
Yes I have that little white thingy on the door frame. Maybe the tip being broken off the brown slider catch keeps it from doing it's job. The screen door will not stay shut I have to bungee it to the window latch.

We have a "lock out kit" available at no charge, since Airstream won't correct the problem.

Send us a SASE with 2 stamps on it, and we will send that kit with instructions to you.

Many others have installed that kit, which stops the problem.

I own a 76 Tradewind that constantly locks me out. My screen door hits the lock button on the door when I am shutting them and flips it from unlock to lock. Keep a spare key outside.

Does anyone know where you can get that white plastic screen door catch? Mine broke and I tried to glue it but it didn't work. My trailer's a '76 if that makes any difference.

Which catch?

The one that holds the screen door to the entrance door, or the catch that holds the screen door to the door jamb?

If I could figure out how to send a photo with my email, I would. But after messing with this thing for half an hour I give.
The piece I need is a 2 piece (catch and plate) white plastic hasp that holds the screen door closed to the trailer door frame.

I appreciate everyone's help. What a wonderful website and such nice readers. My faith in humanity is restored. I've received a very helpful answer for a supplier of my broken part.
