Screen door push bar that unlatches the door

Has anyone seen an rv screen door bar similar to the Camco RV Screen Door Cross Bar 42183 that when pushed it will unlatch the door? Thinking it might be feasible.

Sound like another OldCoot Engineering project to me.

And here I just installed the new Lippert clear screen door mod.

It was too tall for my screen door so I used a Plexiglass knife to trim/snap it to the correct height for my door.

This screen door opener isn't what you are asking for, but keep it in mind as an option. We got one and it is actually a big help, especially when you have your hands full. Screen Door Opener - Camco RV 43953 - Screen Doors - Camping World

I bought that and found it was not what I was looking for.
I never installed it. The new Lippert screen door slider is awesome.
Trimming it with a plastic scribe and snapping the plastic was quick and easy.
I rounded the edges with a knife edge.

Our 2012 came with the clear slide door with the knob. I use one of these to deburr alum, steel, pvc and other plastics.

Took a pic of the cross bar I installed after I put on your set of Awning Support Poles (so nice) you sent me.

Took some other pics of how my 2013 screen door opens. Different than my last trailer with a clumsy sliding door. Yours like this? Here're the pics:

Yep that is it. I had to cut about 1 3/4 inches off the top and it fit right in.

Be nice if the new part is same size as old part, BUT... better the new one is too big so you could trim it down Herk. Line up with the old door handle?
