Screen door latch doesn't reach!

A quick learner from USA says:
Hi, 83-002 fits great only either Latch part (D) is not long enough or Striker part (C) is not deep enough because the screen will not lock. Not even close. What do u recommend? Thx

Did you just get your screen door re-screened recently? I'm wondering if the door was screened too tight, which often causes frames to bow. Regardless, take a look at our 85-007 keeper. This one sticks out a little further. You could also try packing out the keeper you now have with some washers. That might do the trick.

I have ordered 85-007.

007 worked for James Bond --- should work for me.
