Sliding Closet Doors

We hated the looks and the operation of the plastic latch thingies on the sliding mirrored closet doors. They are easy to scrape your arms on, I have old skin and it peels right off, and they are pretty junkie looking. I took ours off and replaced them with a BurglaBar plastic window look.

The BurglaBar glues to the glass with a clear peel and stick adhesive that comes on them, ready for use. The BB is a flip up "L" type plastic device that folds flat so the doors will bypass but will flip up 90* to keep the doors from sliding. It is almost invisible and we mounted it low on the rear/inside door against the frame. Very accessible and out of the way, no more snagged clothes or fileted arm skin and a simple flip to lock the door for travel.

Some of you may have heard of the BB, but I hadn't until I saw it on a family members new Newmar. Wish I had thought of that!! I bought 2 on Amazon for $12. Gotta have a spare!

We have tried using velcro that works quite well. We put a little at the bottom of each door and some on the wall opposite the door. This has worked for us and saved my arms from a lot of scrapes.

After going through three of the original latches I removed the latches and installed the Burglabars (one top and one bottom). After using them for awhile I believe one is sufficient for the job...I often only engage the top one only. They have been in place for about three years and have been fantastic. Highly recommend them.
