Screen and Storm Door Latch Surface Mount For Inswinging Doors

A home owner from Winter Haven, Florida says:
I have an In Swinging Storm Door Lever Latch exactly like your Product Code 40-028. However mine is a keyed model.

The latch that is on the back of the door (the non keyed side) that hooks into the keeper came loose and does not stay on the door anymore, so I cannot lock the door. If I purchase the 40-028, can I use the back part with my keyed model or will that not work? If not, do you sell a keyed version the same type of latch so I can replace the whole latch assembly? Due to the way the door closes on to the frame this appears to be the only latch assembly I can use on the door, as I cannot use a keyed handle set as the back latch is too short to reach the keeper..

Thanks for posting, Bob! There actually used to be a version of this handle available where you could just knock out a punch hole and add a cylinder, but unfortunately the cylinder has been discontinued and is no longer available. I'm afraid that the current 40-028 cannot be converted to a keyed model.
