Help me find this part please!

I need help tracking down a replacement for the part in this picture. It's a little nub like striker plate for my sliding screen door. I have 2 such doors and this part is broken on one of them. This allows for locking the screen door when a lock on the screen door handle is pushed down over this little nub. The piece is about 1.5" long and .5" wide. I cannot find the door mfg anywhere on the door.

I'm counting on some CP sleuthing to help me track this down as my Google skills have failed me to this point. Rep, Casino Cash, good karma, etc. your way!

[IMG][/IMG]

I did just find a small imprint on a steel wrapped portion of the frame that has a small GU imprint on it. Looks like there is a GU Door company.

I think he's going to have to (take the screen into a shop and have them) change out the lock mechanism to something new.

I used a child gates a lot when my kids were small. also, sometimes it's best to just close the door and turn on the AC instead of taking a chance on a screen door keeping a child inside.

Those locks suck any way. At least do what baby Lee said and stick a broom handle in there, though it's better to have the bar on top where you know the kid can't get to it.

Looking up door hardware terminology, that specific piece may be a "keeper."

This is the closest thing I found, but it's both discontinued and too large based on your pic.

Google image searches return things somewhat similar to your part, but not exactly the same. In terms of online research, your last resort may be to unscrew it and take pictures of it from different angles, upload them and do a reverse image search.

Or, just broomstick the track.

Can you take it off and go to Home Depot, see if they have anything that will work?

I may have to go the bar lock route or look into just getting a new screen door installed. This is because of a little one who is starting to learn to open the screen. With the nice cool weather we've had here lately we've had the doors open a lot so I need to try to get this one solved. I'm not big on the broom stick idea as I see that just becoming a new toy that would get carried around. Tried taking it to HD once, but couldn't track anything down on my own and the only employees I found that day were idiots.

Take the lock to Lowes. They should have something. You can also go to one of the "Glass" houses in your area as most do replacement doors. It's going to be a little tough, because most of them mainly deal in commercial applications and your door being residential. I'm actaully a PM for a commercial door company, but I looked into our hardware and we don't have a keeper like that.

Even if Lowes doesn't have that part, they should have some replacement hardware for your screens.

If you're handy, you can embed an angled screw in the upper corner of the door jamb [inside the door track] that will let you use the broom handle out of reach of kids. ie, wedged between the top of the sliding door and the screw head an inch or so down from the top of the door jamb.
