How to install the 83-014?

A home owner from Mission Viejo, CA says:
I procured item Ardor latch #83-014 from your internet site. I went to install it, and it will not easily slipped into the screen door. Is it necessary to remove the screen, and dismantle the door frame to install this catch latch; or am I missing a simple technique for installing on an assembled screen door? If not, this means that I will have to throw away a perfectly good expensive screen mesh. David

Thank you for your patience in this matter. First, you will need to remove the door by lifitng it up and away from the opening. After the door is removed, slide the old handle out of the channel, hold the metal flip latch out and slide into the desired position. Then, simply re-hang the door and check for a secure latching.
