Securing food in our refrigerator

We have a two door refrigerator, the spring loaded bars that work on the single door refrigerators are not long enough to secure the food. Are there longer bars available, if so I have not found them?
How are you securing the food in your double door refrigerator while traveling?

Thanks in advance.

You could try spring tension curtain rods. They come in various lengths. We use them in cabinets of our 5th wheel to prevent items from falling out.

CamCo makes a double refrigerator bar that goes from 19" to 34". Not sure what width you need but here's the link on Amazon:

Thank you for a simple solution to my problem, I am sure others will appreciate your solution too. Don't know why I didn't think of curtain rods, same concept. Thanks again.

Thanks for the info, I have not seen that length anywhere & almost missed it when I clicked onto the link. Our refrigerator's inside width is 32". We are leaving next week for about 3 months so I don't have the time to order the 34" bars. I like the double bars vs single bars but for now I will be getting curtain tension bars due to time constraints.

Thank you for the information

Great tip.

We also utilize various translucent plastic bins varied shapes. Kind of like your door bins. We organize items in them in clusters, plus they'd contain a leak or spill.

Happy motoring.

We use the plastic bins also and we place bath towels in the fridge to take up space. Haven't had an issue yet.
