Entry door keeper

Anyone have a simple, clever way of keeping the male part of the entry door keeper from blowing back & forth going down the road. I know it's a pretty trivial thing but it bugs me. Do they make a catch of some sort for it and if so where would I find one.

Thanks to all

What I did to a small door that wouldn't stay was to super glue a neodymium disc magnet to the camper wall & a washer to the door. Works very well, not sure what you have as for mounting but perhaps worth a thought.

Just get a little patch of velcro. The stick-on kind.

Mine swings up and down, not back and forth, so a small rubber grommet pushed on it and up tight towards the base holds it away from the coach. No more tapping on the side of the coach while in motion.

They make some that snap into their own cradle. You can find them at Camping World...

The good ones are stainless so the idea of the rubber grommet or O ring is a brilliant idea.
