Inside door pull modifications ?

I am needing to do something about how to pull the door closed once inside the coach. The pull that is on mine you have to use your finger tips to close it. This is difficult for me. Have thought about drilling holes in the existing pull handle and put a regular pull handle, like for drawers on it. Also thought about attaching a strap with a bolt and nut just to be able to grab and pull. Any thoughts? Surly I'm not the only one that has a problem with closing the door!

Got my handle off Amazon. Under $14. Goes across door, 4 screws. Do a search


Maybe someone here can post up a link as I don't have it.

I used what BiigDaddy listed from Camping World on both my doors and would not use anything but them ever again. So easy to grab and shut even with full hands.

I guess I'm not getting what Ya'll are talking about. I looked at what BigDaddy suggested. I'm I understanding that you put this screen door bar on the heavy door as well as the screen? I'm not talking about closing the screen but the outside door. Or will that screen door handle close both doors...

I was just about to post the same question. Sounds like your door is the same as mine and the 'big door' attaches to the screen door with a weak plastic latch. I put the big handle on the screen door just like big daddy and after using it to close the doors when latched together the plastic latch broke in 2 weeks. I saw that weakness and already bought a backup latch just in case. They make a metal latch but it doesn't quite fit our application. We don't use the big handle when doors are hooked together..

Is it a problem to open slider in screen door and use outer door handle ? I thought most units had a good handle on them to close the door. Old,worked to hard hands here also.

I like the full handle that CW sells, But the only problem is that once installed and the screen door is close on a 8269WS you can only open the pantry door 3/4 open without hitting the bar. Should have just used what Turbs showed...

I think bombdoc did the same to his after he seen mine.
Simple cheap and takes 30 seconds to install.
