Keeps air circulating inside the fridge when it's not in use.

What b47 said- keeps it from getting funky in storage. We use bungees hooked from the freezer to fridge to block the door from closing.

I had no idea what they were, until now, and threw them away.

Good point and in our Silverback 29 RK (rear kitchen) the dinette slide will hit the fridge door when the slide is retracted if the clips are installed.

I have an a-frame with fridge, no freezer. Is there something like this for my small fridge? Not having much luck searching for "latch that keeps fridge door open".

Our popup had probably the same fridge in it. There was a little latch looking thing that I never could figure out attached to the top. It almost made contact with a chrome bracket on the door, but not quite. Couldn't tell if it was supposed to keep it open or closed but it never did either.

Oh yea, my popup had that as well. Basically the latch that you use to keep the door closed during travel has a second position that will latch the door slightly ajar.

Got that, but it doesn't actually hold the door open. Came loose within first few trips, had dealer tighten, and now it is loose again. Looking for something a little more trustworthy. Thinking I'm going to try to make something like this:
Camco 45641 RV Refrigerator Door Stay (White) : Amazon.com : Automotive
