shower door wont stay closed!

i just finished re-grouting and replacing a few tiles in my shower (stand up shower with door). when i re-grouted i removed the door and jamb assembly to regrout and re-silicone. i also changed the swing of the shower door to make it easier to get out and stay in the bathroom.
furthermore, the old latch system on the shower door was simply a long strip of magnets (full height of door) on both the door and jamb. now the door leaks a bit and the magnets are not strong enough to hold the door closed. i plan on adding some new silicone weather stripping on the door jamb to help seal. what kind of latch do i need? where can i find one? i cannot use magnets anymore because of the weatherstripping.
should i remove the weatherstripping and try to get stronger magnets?

Contact a good glass and mirror store. They can provide the parts to what you may need and they usually have everything there.

Hope this helps!
