Door Accessory Mount Panel

A minor mod to make mounting things on the door easier using alum for weight savings. If you want specifics and materials used etc let me know. I know a lot here eschew drilling holes however, I only added 4 more to the two existing ones. This mod allows you to change things as you want and even change the panels when you want to rearrange with out drilling any more holes. No special tools needed with the exception of a pop rivet gun. However, some special tools make it go faster enjoy.

Good job!

Following the example of baglo, I hung a garbage can on the door like that with command hooks. Works great, especially when outside with the door open. I also put a set of hooks on the inside of the bathroom door for use inside too.

How did you keep it away from the door, is there another piece behind that allows the edge to remain?

Yes Jim there are 3 ea 1/2" O.D Alum U Channel full width behind the panels to space it off the door. You can see one in the screen door clearance photo if you like I can grab a side view shot.

Thanks Jim,

Great idea for a place for trash can to live. So far our trash can has been pretty much under foot and kicked a couple times! This looks like a winner!

Unfortunately, the credit has to go to that baglo character though. At least for putting it on the exterior door, where it stays most of the time.
