That is looking very interesting. Too bad they don't make one for the 4.3.

Wonder if you'd end up keeping the fridge door open longer while you fiddle with the Fridge Guard.

Would not matter, all the cold air is behind the guard. You can probably leave it open.....

At first blush it looks like a bit of a nuisance to work around but given the painfully slow recovery time it might be worth considering.

Of course, you'll try it out and give us all a user report.

Will this guard inhibit cooling of items in the door ?

I wondered about that too. Hey, no problem. Just drill some ventilation holes in them.

Used to run a produce department in a grocery store, we had a strip door with plastic hanging from a top mount. Lets you pass to and fro without futzing with velcro. Should be a simple thing to do in a fridge:

Curtron M-108-PR-4080 40" x 80" Polar Reinforced Step-In Refrigerator / Freezer Strip Door
