Unhappy Securing RVision fridge in outdoor kitchen

Since the RVision fridge doesn't have a locking feature has anyone found a way to secure it? I've tried bungee cord but there really isn't any good hooking points around back. I like to keep drinks back there but every time we are in transit it opens up and all the drinks fall out. Any thoughts?

We use velcro, I put the heavy duty adhesive backed fuzzy side on the door and side of the fridge. Then I took a length of the hooked non adhesive to bridge and secure the door. I'll take pictures in the morning. It has worked for for three years now with no issues.

Velcro is God's gift to RVers.

I use the nylon tie down strap from a discarded RV cover wrap it around the fridge half way up. No issues in 3 yrs.
