Screen door slide? Open without sliding?

Many of the new RV's have a clear plastic slide on the screen door that includes a spring loaded "lever" that can be used to open the screen door wihtout having to slide it open. I have not seen these on any Jayco trailers...but think it owudl be great, especially since my kids seem to forget to close the slide sometimes!

Does anyone know if there are aftermarket options for replacing the screen door slide on a Whitehawk 28 DSBH? OR any other options? I found a company called Lippert that seems to be the source for those styles I am seeing on other brands...but my camper is still in sotrage so no way to tell if they woudl fit, or if there are "standard" screen door slide sizes on Jayco trailers?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

The Jayco had them on their Swift TT's at the Hershey RV show last September. They do make an aftermarket thing you can use. I have them but haven't installed them yet. Here's a silly little video showcasing them.

Installed one last year, measure twice and eyeball to make sure it's where it needs to be. Works great.

I installed the same one mentioned in the video. It works as advertised and have not any problems with it. Is sure does beat having to slide open the little door all the time. It is very easy to install. Like all projects...as mentioned measure twice cut once. I picked mine up at Camping World for about $7.00. Good Luck!
