I've read some folks use either a Velcro strap or another strap with some kind of quick-disconnect on it... Better than cleaning up a mess all the time... 😜

If you have two handles on the front like we do, we use a strip of velcro wrapped around them. The lower drawer, I installed a slide latch that cannot be seen when all the doors are closed.

bounder samsung refrigerator doors flies open

I was able to purchase a 2" wide black nylon strap with plastic male/female connectors at our local Ace Hardware store. I think I bought 2 feet. The plastic connectors may be adjusted for a tight fit. I loop this around the door handles.

I have never had a door open on the fridge, but I do keep a bungie cord looped around the door handles. An ounce of prevention.......?

Piece of plywood cut to a horseshoe shape and covered with felt. Size of the notch depends on the distance between the vertical handles and the length determined on how far you need to go in order to go over the freezer drawer

I use the same thing as Don. Works great, only problem is you have to remember to put it on before traveling. I made a pattern for mine out of cardboard first, then used some scrap plywood to make the actual one, wife covered it with felt. I was uncomfortable drilling holes into my new refrigerator, so we went with this approach.

I use Velcro for the double door handles. For the freezer drawer I have a flat bungee that I hook into small eye bolts near the sides of the refrigerator.

Our coach has a T shaped lock that is located at the top of & between the french doors on the cabinet. The bottom of the "T" is attached to the cabinet & to lock it, I pull it down so the "stem" is between the doors and the top covers the edges of both doors.

That still leaves the the freezer though and it has been known to fly open when someone takes the curves too (IMO) fast! He claims it's a malfunction with the door.

I haven't come up with a way to secure it so Don's fix looks interesting!

I did kind of the same with our Jenn Air. It has two top to bottom extruded aluminum handles. After the third time the doors came open and dumped glass jars on the tile floor we got tired of cleaning up the glass and food. I had a friend where we stayed for a few days take piece of scrap plywood and cut it like that. Slip it over the top of the handles and no more problems.
