Dexter screen door latch...where to buy?

One of the handles on my Dexter dual-handled screen door latch broke off today. I've been Googling for about an hour looking for a replacement without luck. The only Dexter latch everyone (incl CW) show is a single handle. Anyone have any good experience with an on-line retailer who can source Dexter stuff that they don't show on their website?
As a last resort I'll work with my dealer, but would prefer just ordering the thing on line. Looks like a simple 3-screw replacement job.

I'd attempt some 'J.B.Weld' on the broken handle. It's a super strong epoxy and might just work.

We've just had the exact problem. The only Dexter latch I could find is the LH version. These doors need a RH orientation. Can't find anywhere. (This is 2017). Strong epoxy did not do the trick.

Thanks, Cruchman...I had found all those...the first two are the reverse orientation of what I need, the last one is the right orientation, but almost twice the cost! Finally located the correct orientation (RH vs LH), at a comparable price at:

Glad you found the right part.
