Fridge latch

Here are few modifications one for more storage and a latch for the fridge to keep it closed, we had a rather unfortunate incident. It is a patio door lock, where the pin screws into the block added to the fridge.

HI David,
I really like your refrigerator lock nicely done nicely done it sure beats the use of a bungee cord

A very good idea, but if you overstuff the fridge, it won't expand like a bungee.....

When I'm driving, I don't see the bungee, and when I'm camped, I remove it.
No holes.

I have to confess I used a bungee cord in my Escape 19 and I'm still using the same bungee cord on my Bigfoot 21 refrigerator.

Looks good, and more importantly, this should be much more secure than a bungee cord and more convenient (and probably more secure) than a strap.
