I would install a sliding lock on the top of the 2 doors you wouldn't see it and for sure you doors will not open. I'm talking about the top edge. looks like it's about 1 an 1/2" wide up there.

Curious how you use the Velcro in conjunction w/ the existing straps. We've had the same experience with the doors opening, and I don't drive aggressively by a long shot. We use the spring-loaded bars inside to help stabilize items, but you still don't want the doors sitting open several inches going down the road. It makes little difference whether the supplied cord is installed on the outside or inside of the handles, the doors are still going to open. I think this is particularly true if you have items in the doors that make them heavier.

Our refrigerator is on drivers side and when hubby makes a left turn - not making a complete stop but rather sliding around turn - the doors open with the straps on underneath the handles. Things on the shelves slide toward doors and fall when I open doors. I've never seen any bars long enough to cover expanse of width of fridge. Hubby says he has a plan that will stop this. Next time we go out ( which will be later in Dec) we'll see if his plan works. If it does, I'll report it. If not, we'll come up with another game plan.

I cut the velcro about 9" or 10" long and loop it snuggly around the handles themselves. This is the type velcro that has the hook on one side and the loop on the other. I think the biggest problem we have had is overloading the doors. Hope that helped
