Help with 40-040

A quick learner from Saratoga Springs, NY says:
Hello,
When installing the push pull handle (40-040), the catch area is not far out enough to have the handle catch on it and keep it closed. I have already installed both of the plastic pieces behind it to make it stick out to the maximum area.
Thank you,

If you have used multiple shims and its not enough, then you could consider using a piece of wood trim to build out the keeper. I have done that in the past with success.
