I'm having second thoughts on the fridge guard. It's installed on my 4.3 fridge in the 19' Escape. I find that working with the fridge guard makes getting items in and out much (MUCH) slower than without. So is 3 minutes with the door open with the fridge guard better than 30 seconds without? Also, due to congestion at the top, I removed the freezer compartment, thus losing that option. Any others having rethinking this purchase?

I have a hard time finding what I want, without having that curtain in the way ( didn't buy one ).
We have a couple small plastic boxes in the fridge. One contains cheese, deli meats, butter, etc. I can open the the fridge and quickly grab that box and close the door. I can then look for the salami and dig out the cheese.
Another is the crisper with fruit and veg. I do the same. Remove the whole box quickly.

Exactly what we do. We removed the lower shelf to give us more room for the boxes. We include one for ice if we know it will be a long or warm day.

I got the medium one and trimmed it the sides and bottom to fit my RMD8555 with the crisper drawer and shelf removed. I removed it and will not reinstall it.

1) Pain in the neck to get at stuff.
2) The fridge would not get below 41 with it installed. (Which I do not understand. Maybe it blocked the air circulation too much??)

Have any of these fridge fix gizmos actually worked?

The two modifications I've done to my 5.0 cu ft refrigerator that have been useful are adding a pair of fans (more even cooling & reduces frosting of the fins) and LED lighting that lights both the freezer & refrigerator (with a magnetic door switch):

We use one of these and like Jon with his built in fan, it seems to help the fridge have more even cooling: Valtera But it is not a well made long lasting device by any means.
