Question A Better Screen Door Latch?

The bullet latch finally gave out and I am wondering, is there a better RV screen door latch? Many of the new campers have a gismo built into the plastic slider on the screen door itself so you do not need to slide it back keeping the bugs at bay.
My clear plastic screen door panel is cracked and needs to be replaced any ways

So what do YOU suggest as the ultimate screen door latch??

I put one of the springs made to close the screen door on mine. Forgot what the name was. Mine had the really old roller type catch which I kept on with it. I can just push the screen door open, which is handy if my hands are full. The spring closes the door behind me , and the roller latch holds it tight to keep bugs out.

I have a spring too. Maybe I should just leave it at that?
