Microwave door comes open during travel

Our door comes open on rough roads and has for some time. I never broke anything except this trip. The door swung open and the turn table fell out breaking itself and the corian stove top cover. I can glue the corian and get a new turn table but how can I keep this from happening again. I cannot be the only one this has happen to. The catches in the door seem to be working correctly. I was thinking about a small chain or latch of some type. Any one who has solved this problem can help me and thanks in advance.

We always, except once, remove the dish/turntable before driving. The one time we forgot it we had the same thing happen as you.

Same here, original owner of our Pacifica told us to remove the glass turntable b-4 traveling, we have had the door come open twice in 3+ years...usually on rolling right turns.
