Need to replace screen door latch

I have a 2018 AS and the sliding pull ring on the screen door latch broke off. I have two options; (1) crazy glue it back together (which I'm not crazy about), or (2) get a new latch unit.

A couple of questions about the rivets. They look like plain pop rivets but what size are they?

Also, there's a strip of foam gasket along the edge of the screen door. I'll have to remove a few inches of it. Where can I find replacement for it?

Thanks in advance.

Home Depot, Lowes, etc. have pop rivets in assorted sizes and foam screen door weatherstripping.

Get a new latch, Woodland Airstream 616 363 9038 Call for part number, then MUST place order online. Drill out old pop rivet and install. . DO NOT pull the pin on the assembly until back in place... Het beste...tot zeins

You have a third option. In my case it is the preferred option. I replaced the difficult screen door latch with magnets. Using strong magnets from Amazon, with holes predrilled, I screwed them to the door frame and riveted to the door. I don't have pictures right now, but could provide if needed.

It easily sticks to the main door when opened. It is also easy to reach out and just close just the screen door. It easily sticks to the door frame and never comes open accidently.

BTW, magnets also keep our bathroom door wide open when desired, by attaching magnets to the curtain closet and the bathroom door in just the right spot on the floor. No more bathroom door in the hallway!

I got the following from my FC parts book. I don't think the screen doors have changed much over the years. This should get you started.

380004 Handle with 8/32” x 1 screw
683946 Bug seal, Edge of screen door close out
381454 Screen door hold back latch, Bullet

Here is the link to the 2018 FC Parts Manual:https://www.airstream.com/wp-content...s-book-341.pdf

Screen Door Latch

I own a 2015 25' Airstream Flying Cloud. Had the same issue last summer. Found an exact replacement on Amazon.

I would love to see pics of how you used the magnets. Thx.
