No, I found a metal shop here in Vancouver, gave them the old one so they would have the correct bends and distances for the top over the door and a drawing of what I wanted. Cost me a donation to their coffee fund of $5.

Finally finished the install of the door closure bracket I have made. Seems to be working well, but time will tell. Pics attached.

Looks like it should do the job quite well but If it were me I would have chosen something like button head bolts and put the heads on the outside for a better appearance. I think the door will rot away and fall apart though long before your fix fails.

I checked ours the other day after reading this post and so far after 2 years of use no sign of it pulling loose. Fingers crossed.

Now this is the kind of posts that I really like about this forum. My wife thinks I am smart cause I know what to do to fix this kind of thing. Please don't tell her I am reading this forum.
