Looking for screen door inside latch ideas

When the screen door is open and you want to exit the coach you have to slide the plastic window to get to the latch.

Any alternatives?

Change the latch for one that has a handle on both sides.

I put this one on my door, we have the clear slide and latch like yours. This works great.

I added this to mine. You simply push it down (spring loaded) from the inside and it pushes the outside lever. It's an item I saw on a lot of new 5th wheels.



The round knob is installed into the sliding plastic pane. Before you ask me for part numbers, it's not something you can just buy and replace the sliding panel. I bought the piece, already attached to a plastic pane, like our coaches have, but it doesn't fit the opening in our doors. I disassembled it and then added to the plastic pane in our doors.

So, it works great, but not something you'll want to mess with unless you're handy and want to spend the time. I had to cut out this opening in my OEM pane.

I found this one on the Internet (halfway down the this page): Drill a small hole in the handle and in the stationary part of the door slide, for a bicycle spoke or piece of wire. It is cheap and works very well!

Camco makes a cheap and easy unit that you can find here. https://www.google.com/search?q=camc...obile&ie=UTF-8
