Pella screen door replacement part

A home owner from Randolph, NJ says:
I have this screen door latch, which still works fine, but the plastic part on the door frame that grabs the latch is broken and doesn't grab, so the door doesn't stay closed. Is this part included in the replacement kit?

Thank you for contacting us. Are you referring to our 85-016? If so, this comes with everything pictures, including two screws, a spring, and a plastic stop. 

You could also consider our 85-020A patio sliding screen door strike kit. I'm not sure if this is the type you're looking for, though. If your patio screen door was an older style then its hardware may no longer be available. Pella goes through screen door styles quickly and they discontinued everything that was used for them. If you can send us some photos of the parts you now we can do our best to find what you need!

A home owner from Randolph, NJ says:
I sent these already. Your suggested parts won't do it. Any other ideas?

Thanks for getting back to us. We haven't seen these photos yet, but now that we have I'm afraid I have some bad news. That keeper of yours was discontinued by Pella and they no longer have it in production. We did carry it at one time, but our stock ran out not long after it was discontinued. We've never been able to find a reasonable substitute for it. Pella hardware is very hard to substitute by design. Your best bet is to contact a local Pella dealer who may have older stock still. I am sorry we cannot provide more assistance.
