New residential fridge lock

While viewing the coaches at this years Hershey RV Show one of the newest features jumped out at me. Most manufacturers are installing this latch on the residential refrigerators to assure the doors stay shut while driving. I was impressed with the latch they are using and knew I had to find the source to purchase one for mine. It looks good and is easy to install and works like a charm.

After some intense searching I found the source. It is distributed by a company Sugatsune.com and sold by Homeclick.com. It is a model HC-65. They sell for $16.15 so are very reasonable. Here is the link:

I did almost the same thing but I got the plywood from a friend while staying at his house and he even cut it for me.

Those are installed on our new unit and they are nice. No homemade thing-a-ma-what's-it to scratch the finish or put away. Just flip a latch, nice and neat. I think they are worth the 16 bucks. Thanks for sharing...good find.

Same here. Ours came with the lock. Works great if you remember to throw the latch. Entering Disney World made a turn and realized wife forgot to latch the fridge, doors flew open, pickle jar hits tile floor, entered Fort Wilderness with wife on her knees cleaning pickle juice off the floor.

Been using that latch for over a year (no offense intended) after trying various other solutions. Been very happy with it. I placed mine half way between the top of the handles and top of the refrig., kind of eye level. some people place it middle of the handles. I use pin and brackets for the freezer section. Someone did report ruining their fridge by hitting a gas line while trying to install. I'm not sure where they were trying to place it as my understanding is there is no lines in the doors.

My 2007 Navigator in my signature came with that. Been out there for quite a while, I figured all coaches with household fridges had that.

My Maytag unit has it as well. I thought it was factory? We've only had a chance to use it for 2500 miles or so but works fine as far as I can see.

That happened THREE times on our maiden voyage with ours till we got to our friends house in Fresno and got the "lock" made. Even then the pantry door opened as we put the main slide out and another jar of pickles hit the tile floor!
As to scratching the finish: it's hard to scratch anodized aluminum with wood!
