Door retainer help

The lever gizmo that holds my 2007 KSDP coach door open is really loose and barely holds the door open. There is just a lot of play. It appears that there are no bolts to tighten.

Does anyone know how to tighten these up?

The Posi-A-Loc , has a spring in the top of the door that can stretch or break , causing issues .
I haven't had mine apart but from other posts you have to be up on a ladder beside the open door to access a plate to examine the spring.
There are some posts ( linked ) on the repair in the " Sticky " posts in the top of the list in the Newmar owners forums .
Quick fixes and easy mods .

If you look at the circular piece of metal that jams in between the "forks" you will find a split. You can put a small screwdriver in here and twist the metal open a little. Alternatively, if the stay is very hard to "unlock" you can use pliers to squeeze the metal ring closer. Had to play with mine a little to get it just right.

Thanks for the advice.

I decided to order a new one from Newmar (about $6), but I am still unclear why my current one wiggles up and down. If the main door is not fully open the hinge thing hangs down and rubs on the screen door.
