Plastic door latch has broke twice

The plastic door latch has broke for the second time. I've looked at replacing with a metal one but was wanting to see if I could replace with a strut instead. Has anyone out there done this before and if so what and where did you get the correct strut.

IF you are talking about the latch that holds a cargo type door open--just buy the stainless steel latches and replace the cheap plastic ones. Yes you can put struts on the doors but it will entail a lot of measurement to obtain the correct length struts for your particular application.

Or are you referring to the plastic latch for the screen door? Mine broke this past summer, but thankfully just days before going to Goshen so I had it replaced there.

So I know replacement plastic ones are available, not sure on metal.
