There is a long screw with a plastic washer that they put on it that looks like they cut it out of some piece of scrap plastic that came with our rig. It works great. Another thought is the refrigerator lock for kids.

Thanks for the photo. That looks a lot like what we are thinking of making to add to ours.

I added A square piece of Plastice 2" x 2" to the securing knob on ours. If you tighten that knob to tight it will just cause the 2 doors to seperate top and bottom, And likly they will open when on the road. That piece of plastic spreads the holding power over more door area. Also try to get in the habit of not storing heavy(Gallon) containers on the door when traveling. We put them on the shelves then when we get to the CG we move them to the door.
Happy Travels

We made a plastic washer to add to the knob to get more coverage on the doors. Bought a cheap cutting board from Dollar General and then used 2.25" whole saw to cut it out. Got 3 out of the board so have backups. I think this will work just great. And we'll no longer load up the door with bottled water while traveling. Thanks for all the tips.
