Screen door latch

Anybody have an issue with the screen door barely catching the latch? I've adjusted everything I can unless I want to bend those plates at the hinge and it barely catches. I put a temporary shim behind the latch but want a permanent solution without having to get the dealer to do it.

Yep, we have to be super careful or the door doesn't latch. I need to adjust it.

Ours was real hard to close before adjusting. Had enough adjustment to get it to close with light pressure. Works fine now.

Carpenter pencil worked perfect. Did all 3 hinges, 1 by 1, a couple times each and now my door latches fine.
