T For a Tight Seal
September 29, 2015
Filed under Quick Tips
I recently traded to a coach with residential appliances and found that I did not like the method used to strap the refrigerator doors together to prevent opening during travel. I cut a “T” fitted to the door handles to secure the doors and now I just slip the T into place and the doors stay closed. Since my refrigerator has a bottom freezer, the center of the T extends to capture that drawer. The key is a good fit so that the thickness is snug when inserted and the notches fit around the refrigerator handles. I used Plasti Dip Spray to coat the T so that it won’t scratch the refrigerator and it helps prevent slipping. I added a pull-cord for convenience.
