screen door pull keeps breaking

My 2006 17B has a folding screen door with a string pull handle (see photo). I've tried using wire to wrap around the rivet, and it works for awhile, then breaks. Any ideas? Thanks! (sorry, photos ended up sideways for some reason!)

I would drill out the old rivets and pop rivet a new piece right to the door. Leather would also work well.
