If ya turned the door around so it opens down like Old Coot says, you would have this problem.

I use an adhesive on the plate then screw or rivet it to the interior skin. Never had a problem. I've seen some manufacturers at the R/V shows are doing this now at the factories.

For those thinking of getting Blue Streak you can get it from Rvupgrades.com for $50.00 with free shipping. I have bought other things from them and they have great customer service. They drop ship everything.

Thanks OldCoot! Now to find out what an "octagon box cover" is...

Though, I will say that the door is way easier to open and close with only 1 strut.
