Screen for the back door?

I really want to be able to open the emergency door, but I don't know how to fit a screen into it with that hinge up top in the middle. Anyone have any luck on getting a working screen?

I have screen with magnets - and just stick it on - works great. And easy to take on and off.

I use these- and they hold a screen on the side windows while driving at 58 mph...

Hmm, I don't have enough space where the door sets to use those kind of magnets, I wonder if they have strips like that
