I installed some stick-on child proofing latches to keep my fridge closed.  I read the horror stories about drilling into fridges and destroying them so I didn't want to drill or screw into the fridge.

Bob,

NO, she didn't!   Tongue

But she did imply I better solve it before the next trip..... Wink  We were still in the Velcro stage..

I am going to get a Tee blank and redo with only the holes I need, thinking about dipping it in Plasticote.

Here is a few pictures of the catch.

It is just a Tee bracket that was bent, and the end rounded, works perfect.

Use the existing door hinge bolts( for reversing door).

Cliff,
That's pretty much what I was thinking of, and will go on the list of things to do. "when all of the REALLY important things are done" . Looooong list. I'm told that a working shower is on the top of the REALLY important stuff. Grin
Unfortunately there is something I have to do, before something I have to do,before something I have to do, before I do that.  Grin Grin Grin

Real quick mine is built into a cabinet. But I did notice over the weekend the door is starting to sag. we do tend to load the door. I would advise watch those hinges. I think I'll be building a support bracket to the bottom  hinge

We use plenty of l brackets. Never had an issue and I've made some hard stops. 26 cubic foot Samsung fridge.  Also use child latches to latch the doors. Work perfect and can be toggled on or off.

we use 2 ratchet straps to the wall and with wine corks split in half long ways in the jams to keep from bending the hinges and doors....not elegant  Roll Eyes but only takes a minute to get into fridge and when parked they are undone, also have a 2x4 bolted to floor and the wall (3/4 up fridge) to space fridge away from wall (a different approach will be dealt with this winter after camping season)

I like those child latches!
