Storm door handle replacement

A home owner from USA says:
I see that you recommend the 40-145 as a replacement along with the 40-179 shim for the inside handle for the forever storm door.

I also see that it comes with a flat spindle. The spindle currently on the door handle is 3/16" square. I have 3 questions.

# 1. Will I need only 1 shim?
# 2. Can I use the 3/16' spindle I have, or will the flat spindle work ?
# 3. Will I need a new striker plate?

Thanks for your help.

One shim should work, but you may need two. Might not be a bad idea to have an extra one handy just in case. I would use the original 3/16" spindle, as well. Finally, you should be able to reuse your old striker plate.
