Maybe some velcro?? I'll check the area for support also.

converter door

On my 19 I just put a piece of metal I had that was about 1/2 long and 1/4 wide that had a small hole near the end, it was screwed into the wood just above the door and would loosely hang over the door. That would lock the door closed but easy to move to push to unlatch the door.

So how do you open it? There's no space even to get a finger nail in and if it can't push it in how do you get it pop open?

converter door

The small tab hangs loosely down over the door, move it out of the way with one finger while pressing on the door to open it normally. To close the door , just move the tab over while closing the door. Worked great for nearly three years. I now have to go through my junk to find another for the 21.

Thanks Jack, actually my question was directed at using VHB to keep the panel from popping open. Your post just jumped in between his post and mine.

I've used your solution on other items and it's probably the simplest. Gravity always works. And if it doesn't we've got bigger things to worry about.

Simple solutions to "problems" like this keep me addicted to this forum. Thanks for a great yet simple solution to the problem of the falling converter door.

Hopefully some one can obtain these and mail in an envelope to other members, I can find a screw, but for postage I'd get one. Something to bring to next years rally, maybe 10-15 of them to hand out, just thinking outside the box, wait, these belong on the box....converter that is...
