Items in medicine cabinet fall out

When I first open the medicine cabinet in our Escape 19 after traveling, things fall out. What type(s) of modifications have your done to prevent this?

There have been a number of solutions posted, but may be difficult to find. In my case I used pieces of 1" clear corner protector (used to protect outside corners of sheet rock walls) and pop riveted them to the shelves. Others have done the same using VHB tape.

One of the first mods to my trailer. Opening the cabinet and having items repeatedly fall out is frustrating.

Check out my post #2 in this thread for pics and details:
https://www.escapeforum.org/forums/f...7-b-18568.html

I was inspired by others on the forum who did something similar.

I like Vermily's creative solution and I've seen folks use small diameter curtain compression rods cut down to fit the width of the cabinet.

The easy way is to get some elastic cord and put it through holes you drill on each side, then knot.
However I found the shelf itself a little flimsy and wanted to fix that at the same time. Here is a link to what I did.

This is what I did. Note this is on an aftermarket recessed medicine cabinet I installed but should work fine on a stock version as well.

Very creative Bill! Nice use of an off the shelf product. I like the dividers your solution offers also.

I sliced a piece of pool noodle in half and duct taped it to the insdie of the door at the right height as an experiement. It was always my intention to carefully glue it in place but it remains another project half done. It does work well.
