Refrigerator Door Won't Stay Closed

Is anyone else having a problem keeping the Whirlpool three door residential refrigerator doors closed while traveling. Our style has two side by side refrigerator doors and a drawer for the freezer at the bottom. We slide the lock in place but it doesn't keep the doors locked which you find out when you go around a corner.

Can you post a picture of latch maybe one of us can come up with a answer.
Would it be similar to this fridge for locking.

Just like that one.

The motorhome is in a storage facility but yes the latch is just like that one. I probably also have a Maytag and not a Whirlpool refrigerator which I originally stated. We lock the latch but it apparently vibrates loose while traveling. I guess I will have to try the dish towel to see if this helps.

Thanks for your responses.
