Refrigerator door latch-WARNING

Hey all,
Our refrigerator door latch is junk. It’s a 12v unit this latch is on. The latch is just a swing lever that has 2- ends one for the freezer one for the fridge door. We left for the first trip and when we got there everything was on the floor, eggs broken everywhere and a big mess. A dent in the refrigerator door by hitting the dining room table. When the slide is in the table is close. So I tried peening the rivet on the latch tighter but that didn’t last. So I made a lanyard out of a long boot lace fastened on one end to the side fridge bracket. Tie a loop in the other end just place it over the latch to keep it in the proper position. If yours has the same style latch do it. I hope this helps.....
