Refrigerator follow up

In my earlier posting I talked about removing my "broken" fridge and replacing it with an 110V household unit. Bought a Magic Chef 4.3 fridge-two door model which matches our other appliances-wife likes that.
It is slightly smaller than the Dometic so will fit the opening nicely. I'm looking for the best advice on how to secure fridge, particularly the front and should I allow some movement or strap it down solidly. Looking foreward to advice before I start.

Strap it down solidly. Also make sure that your installation allows it to vent the heat produced, as building it into an RV enclosure is not how it was designed. My Ref radiates all of the heat from the back, so I left my old vents open and sealed the sides around it so cold/hot air & little flying critters don't get into the coach.

Securing door when in motion.

Best is a good old fly hasp and a spring clip, or other clip or hair pin.. Looks ugly but works

Second best is sold by campingm world It is a plastic thing that snap locks, you simply push aside to open.
Home is where I park it!

Please tell me if this sounds OK. Install 2X2's around base [sides & back] , replace old insulation on sides and pack tight , leave about 6ins clearance at back , strap top. Still working on front also put mosquito netting over big outside vent.......?
