We use the same Moen handle.
(But I keep looking for something slimmer.)
Our is closer to the hinge side so we can reach it from inside to close the door.
I think it was a dollar cheaper at Home Depot....

We bought ours at Amazon We got it after opening the door on a windy night in New Mexico. I almost missed the door handle when the wind grabbed the door just after I opened it.

Am now thinking I might turn mine but the curvature of the door does hinder placing it just anywhere. The good part about these suction devices (either the Moen or the Ikea version) is that they can be changed if one finds he or she likes a better spot.

I am tickled pink with mine as the wind grabbed my door today and it was a natural to catch it with my new handle.

We took the bottom screw out of the door window and put a pull knob in its place.

Weird.
My 2008 17B came with this screen door handle riveted to the door. Simple.

Using two IKEA suction hooks, remove the hook, choose a handle of your choice (I tried a barn handle in black from Lowes and a "free" handle that came on a box I received; one of those thin plastic handles) I enlarged the holes to 1/2 inch. and placed them over the threaded rods and cinched them down. They don't take up as much room as the Moen handles from Lowes. Pics below:
I like this idea using Stugvik. Do you know how Stugvik compares? Maybe what you have is Stugvik? If so, it is different now.

Not Stugvik but Immeln.

IMMELN Hook, zinc plated - IKEA

They have stayed on for 3,500 mile trip to Colorado. They have a smaller footprint so they fit well on the door.
