The part I saw on Amazon doesn't have a knob, just a lever to release the latch and a couple of locking levers. If the lever is hitting the screen door, any chance the door could be trimmed or made to miss the lever? My screen door has a large bowed plastic panel that slides to access the door lever.

Is this what your looking for? It's what our Dolphin has, has a lever inside. We have a separate dead bolt.

That is very similar to what I tried. There are two levers on the inside. The on on the right controls the lock and is in the way of the screen door.

Our is similar to that entry lock. Outside just one key and paddle to open door. Inside lever to open door and a knob that you push or pull to lock or unlock latch. We have a separate dead bolt. If your original latch is a TriMark you may try calling them ask for assistance selecting a new latch.

I had the same issue and so did several others. Just take a mini grinder and cut off the side of the knob that hits the door and then take some black paint and paint it.
