What are people using or replacing for their screen door latch on an older airstream?

I have a 72' safari and my screen door latch broke off tonight, I tried to look for an original replacement on the web but couldn't find one, what are people using for a new latch if theirs breaks? I keep seeing a JR bullet screen door latch for newer airstreams, has anyone made this work on an older airstream screen door? Pics? Instructions? Quality? Thanks.

Will this work? https://www.vintagetrailersupply.com...-p/vts-390.htm
It's basically a shower door catch.
