I dont know exaclty what type I am looking for there are so many types of keepers. Tried looking for it at many hardware stores, but had no luck so far.

I'm not sure what to recommend. Your mortise lock looks like our 82-218, which could take one of the following keepers: 89-021, 89-021, or 89-028. However, it would depend on how much room you have in the door. Your side jamb appears to have a cut out for the keeper, which is why I'm suggesting the 89-017 or 89-028. Take a look and see if you can match up any mounting holes with one of these keepers.
