Replace missing sliding screen door latch and pull

A home owner from Hampton, NH says:
Need a screen door latch and pull replacement. I measure the distance from hole to hole as 2 1/4". The distance from the holes to the edge of the door is 1 3/8". there are no identifying labels on the door itself so unsure of brand. I have attached pictures. We are currently using a piece of vinyl cord to open and close door.

Looking at your photo I see you have something like our 86-023 turn lock. I also notice looking your Patio screen door (and the impression of the old handles) that it seems that it's been installed backwards. The 83-018 handle goes on the inside of the door so that the 86-023 lock turns into the open space in the handle. The outside handle, our 83-019, is just a straight pull. You need to take the screen door from the track and turn it around to reinstall it the correct way. You will have holes on both end side rails of the door. Andersen usually gives you a cover plate to cover up the screw holes on the non locking side.
