Keep screens door to main door

My 2004 Dutch Stat there is a rubber thing that the screen door handle fits into. Its screwed into the main door and has 2 rubber pieces that keeps the screen door handle rest in thak keeps the screen door attacked to the door. WHAT'S IT CALLED. I need to replace the part, or find some thick rubber to replace the bent, tired 16 year old rubber pieces. Any help?


Thanks
John

Ours did that and I used a piece of thick leather to make a new one. It works quite well.

Check the label on the main door for the manufacturers name. Their website has them for sale.

Do you have the website. I do not have a manufacturer’s label attached to the door.
Thanks

I did an easy fix by cutting a piece from one of my empty Arizona Green Tea jugs. Fits perfectly and works better than the original.

I found the rubber sheet at McMaster Carr and ordered a small sheet. Used the old part as a template to cut a new past. Works and looks like new.

The door on my 2003 is from PTL Engineering Handles & Locking Mechanisms - PTL Engineering

Item #019-011 third item from the bottom.

If I would have found this sooner I would have just ordered from them.

Great suggestions, all! Like the leather idea. I'm going over to the RV and measure the rubber thickness. I found 1/16th. The 3/16 but only find it in big sheets. The leather idea is sounding better all the time; I can. quickly and get that, think it will outlast the 14-year-old rubber �� I guess we'll never know. Let you know what I do. Funny, nobody knows the name for them. Now I'm curious.
