It's a modified plate mount from a 2015 Chevy Equinox (go to any Chevy dealer parts Dept to get it). The newer model Chevy lineup has a similar shape to the bumper. Used a belt sander to get the angle right to fit the GT bumper. It really looks like it came from the factory that way now. Pretty pleased with the results...

Here's a simple little project for the purpose of making it easier to access the Frig while driving yet keep it from popping open around corners. While the bungee works fine for the freezer, it doesn't work very well for the frig doors.

Your refrigerator door restraint looks great. Assuming it is made out of wood (plywood or ?) is it painted red or did you use plastic-dip? What are the rough outside dimensions?.

Used a double shallow outlet box so I could relocate the power outlet and have access for the cable to feed though. You can't tell the difference when finished other than not having to empty the stuff sitting on the bed while traveling, it now has a home!

Mine had about 5-6 screws through the plywood from the back side, into a piece of plywood bolted to the tv.

There is a panel in the left side closet that you can remove and reach through.

Aquaman, must have had the upscale mount, mine had 3 screws going from inside through the wall and into a peice of plywood that was screwed into the TV mounts with a couple of small metal strips. Definitely a 2 person job, one to hold the tv and one to wrench their through the hole in the closet to the front wall of the deadspace. I found a locking bracket on amazon that wasn't more than $10-15, easy to lift TV on and off and a you reach from underneath and flip a little lever and it locks the Tv onto the wall plate.

I thought of going that route, but once I had the tv off and the door made, it was easy to screw it back on the front.

CA Fisherman, The frig hook is 1/4" plywood, the dimensions are roughly 11" x 18", each leg 3" thick with a 5" space in the middle, across the top 5" thick as well. I coated it with red felt by using Elmers spray on glue for the flat sides and brushing on wood glue along the edges. First attempt came out workable, had to re-position some of the magnets covering the frig, and if I was going to make another one, I would flair out the legs at about 5" down on the inside maybe just an inch or so on each side, this would allow for easier on and off and still be tight since the 5" x" 5" center is what holds the door tight. So would look like a modified upside down V. Don't use anything more than a quarter inch thick either. Wife thinks this is much easier to get to the frig while moving as opposed to the baby proof straps we were using on the frig doors prior.
