I can't tell from the photo how deep the recess is for the latch but you might want to try warming the vinyl. A hair dryer or a heat gun, used VERY carefully, will soften the vinyl up enough to give it a little stretch. When I use vinyl I always lay it out in the sun for a bit before I start. The stuff is just much easier to work with generally if it's not cold.
