No pre-existing latch/hole in frame

Is there a way to add a latch to a sliding screen door that currently has no latch, or pre-exsisting hole where your spring is inserted?

Thank you for your patience!
Unfortunately, there are so many variables that contribute to whether or not you can successfully add a latch to a screen door without preexisting holes for the spring, or a door that has no latch.
But, we have added the new 83-006 Sliding Screen Door Lock Assembly, which is surface mounted and could be an option for doors like yours that don't currently have a latch or preexisting holes for the spring.
