Keeping pantry rack doors closed while traveling

With can goods and traveling down the road, we had several occasions when the door would be open when we got to our camp area. I installed these clasps to prevent the racks from open the door's while going down the road. At $1.99 for the pair it's cheap insurance to prevent damage. He are some pictures of the installation. Hope this helps someone out there. Just make sure that you get the location of the clasp right and shake the racks to insure that it is adjusted correctly. They should not come unhooked.

I just use velco strips between the 2 doors, also on the cabinet doors in the LR that the slide would catch if they opened.

This is only a single door, so I can't use the velcro method for this door. It only means of securing the rack is the tension of the spring stop of the door. And even spreading the tap to increase the tension doesn't work. But I do use the velcro straps on dual door cabinets. That method works well too.

Keeping drawers closed

The drawers under the kitchen cabinets come open in travel. I use an expandable shower rod between the floor and counter top lip in front of the drawers. Works really well.
I know it's differe then your question, but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway...

I tried the child proof cabinet locks and they broke pretty quick with the weight of the pantry door slide.

These are metal clasps, I use the child proof latches on the drawer, use two of them for large drawers.

Besides I couldn't use the child latches on these single doors because of clearance issues.

We have two drawers on top of each other under the kitchen sink and a lower one to the left of those, under the oven. We just loop a bungee around the 3 knobs and we're good to go.
