How do I secure the lever on the 83-003?

A quick learner from Portland says:
I'm installing an 83-003 in a screen door. My question has to do with the lever on the sliding latch assembly. This lever, the part I move up & down, projects through a slit in the frame & handle, has a hole at its end. How do I secure the lever's white plastic tab to the lever? With the kit I received only 4 sheet metal screws. Am I missing a part that would take care of this? Many thanks.

On this particular handle, the lock tab just pushes into the white part in the handle that slides up and down. The tension in the spring keeps it in place. Some handles like the 83-002 have a "blind rivet" the keeps the slide in place, but this is not a necessary feature on the 83-003.
