Door latch adjustment

I noticed the door on my 140 doesn't close very tight with just the bottom latch. The striker plate is alreadt moved in all the way - in fact it looks like the slots have already been lengthened to move it in more. Anyone have any previous experience with this issue? I was considering making a new latch with the ootsie edge of the opening a little longer to provide for more adjustment.
