In your particular case, I would just open the door!

How about a medium sized suction cup stuck next to the slider?

You don't understand what he's trying to keep in. It's not human!
Can you say "feral cat"?

If you have the big foldable grab handle, you can open the slider and flip it across the door:



It doesn't stop junior from opening the slider and chucking things out- but it might stop your non-human.

This still does allow the door to open 1" or so. If you don't want it to open at all, I think a simple hook/loop latch would suffice.

Ohhhh an escape artist, my mom had one of those.
It was best to just leave a door open.

Wait, is it literally *just* the plastic slider that is the issue?

Ehh- still seems like a hook and loop somehow rigged up would be the answer.

Smile Our entry door

First of all, Cooper is no feral cat. He's an exotic. A full blooded Burmese. Jersey Boy gave me the best, though not the funniest solution. A trip to CW will fix him!

I feel like there's an inside joke here...

This isn't going to answer your door question. However, I have an escape artist that travels with us. Katrina waits for someone to open the door & then springs out. We have slowed down the escaping by keeping a water spray bottle at the steps. If we are in & out a lot, the bottle is sitting outside on the steps. Now all I do is pick up the bottle & rarely have to spray anymore.
