Screen door latch thickness

A quick learner from USA says:
My screen door latch looks exactly like your 84-232 including all the dimensions except mine is 1/2" thick not 1" thick. Will it work or what will work? My strike is gone. What strike works with the 84-232 or the latch you recommend?

Thanks for posting. Could you show us a few pictures of your hardware? That will help us find something that can work. I know you say it's identical to the 84-232, but if there's a difference as significant as door thickness then there may be other subtle differences, as well. Thanks!
A handy person from Cabot, Arkansas says:
When you say 84-232 is 1" thick, do you mean the thickness of the edge of the door which is the distance between the two plastic parts that screw together?

Yes, we measure from the edge of the door. It's not that 84-232 that is 1" thick, but the door on which it installs.
