Travel safe
Ok...I've just crawled out from under my rock... what's a pool noddle?

Also make sure refrigerator doors are securely shut. One time my wife didn't get them latch properly and when I when into the trailer after getting home, watermelon had fallen out and busted open on the floor. That was a fine mess to clean up!

I like the fridge bars. I use three total in transit. No surprises now or other items trying to jump out while in transit. They work well for what they are designed to do. I even cool them down before all the food is loaded to help the efficiency of the fridge. Good cheap investment and will last a very long time.

I've found the spring bars more of a PITA than useful. Haven't used them the past two years and never had a problem.
The glass plate inside the microwave, on the other hand, can be, an issue. It sometimes ends up on the floor when I forget to take it out before traveling.

PITA? They are cheap and work as advertised. Quite simple really.

Another vote for fridge bars! Come travel the roads here in NJ and all of the DE Valley and you'll never question the need again!

I use a double spring bar that I got at Wal-Mart. Once while traveling my fridge door came open but everything stayed behind the spring bar stayed in place.
