Keith, unfortunately I can't seem to locate this exact corner. However, through my personal experience with repairing screens with similar corners I was able to use the 95-002 Corner Key as a replacement. This corner locks in nicely into the screen frame; not to mention it is metal, it should hold up better. The reason for the odd double shape is that the bottom leg helps hold in the finger latch and keeps it from coming out of the frame. To prevent this, what I have done (and do) is to cut a leg off the corner (or off the 95-002) and just install it into the channel so that it will hold in the latch and spring. If you don't have latches, just skip this step.
