Upgraded cabinet hardware? Locking push knobs?

Has anyone convinced Escape to upgrade the cabinet hardware from the pinch-clamps they use to hold the cabinets shut, to the recessed push-knobs that are commonly used on boats? My specific concern is if I load plastic bins on top of each other in the wardrobe on the E19, they will likely shift while driving and push the door open. Thanks for your thoughts! Jordan

You can install the expand rods used inside refrigerators to keep items on shelves. or a lip on shelf.

Mine opened on their own a few times when I first got the trailer, changed to these and have not had them open since.



The down side is I have cut my arm on them reaching in once or twice.

There are a bunch of handy devices for keeping most any cabinetry closed - check out child lock devices. My favorite are the hidden ones that you can’t see at all but positively lock and you open with a magnet that you can park on your range hood. There’s a button on the lock itself to activate or deactivate the locking feature.

I've checked these out for hidden spaces in my home. Here's another one: https://www.amazon.com/Jambini-Magne.../dp/B00PV6H3Z8
