How to latch the screen door to the main door

The latch holding the screen door to the main door is broken and half missing. That part is apparently not available anymore. I'd love to be able to just swing the screen into the main door and have it latch.
What is a good substitute?

I use a magnet and steel target plate. Nothing to unlatch. Just pull apart.

Great. After reading this I found the bolt several places, but I love the idea of the magnet. I'm going to try that first.

How do you use the flat side bolt type? Would like to give that a try. Do you have a picture. Thanks for any help. Regards, Joe
