Similar to 83-116

A quick learner from Huntington Beach says:
I have a sliding screen door latch that appears almost exactly to your 83-116. I ordered one, however soon realized that where mine has holes in the front for two screws (into the metal frame of the door) the 83-116 has two plastic studs. I tried to cut off the studs and drill holes to make it work, but couldn't get it right. Mine has no plastic handle on the backside. This must be made by Swisco, as they look almost identical otherwise. Any ideas which model I need to order?

Thank You,

Thank you for your patience during this busy season. 

Your handle does looks similar to the 83-116, but without the "snap together" design with the screw bosses. The problem is that I couldn't find your design from any of our sources. This has eluded me pretty thoroughly. Take a look at the 84-230 or 84-231 handles instead to see if one of these could be used on your screen door. They are similar in function but slightly different in the details, so I cannot confirm that they will work. I'm afraid we don't have anything closer, though.
