Looking for right door strike plate

I found out that the the root cause of a door banging with windows open is a door strike plate with a too small opening.
The door latch has a pin like this this:

What strike plate would match this?
My current one is to small to fit the full latch with pin

Pretty much any strike plate sold in stores would work.

Don't know what kind of strike plate you have now.

The door latch diameter is about 19mm. The hole with in the strike plates I got is about 17mm.

ok. I think this is user error. I concluded that the small pin/bolt should not go inside the opening
