Basically the same principle. Works great on my Whirlpool French door.

We use a child proof lock for babies on the French doors and child proof locks that stick on for the freezer. Less than $30.00.

I installed 90 lbs magnetic catches on all 3 doors. (It really doesn't take 90 lbs to open them. Maybe 40?) Key is to get them aligned well. I used some extra SS plates I had from my sailboat to do so.

I really don't want another thing I need to check before we leave.

We went the cheap and simple route - based on an image found during a web search for fridge locks. Cut from a piece of 3/8 baltic birch plywood (scrap I had laying around) an "E" shaped figure with the center leg the longest. Legs face down and the "plywood lock" is inserted in the french door fridge handles. Longer center leg keeps the freezer drawer from opening. When parked, we stored the lock on top of the dash in the center - hard to miss when driving off.

When our big slideout slides in, there is about a 16" space between the refrigerator and the pantry. I use velcro to secure the double refrigerator doors together and Heartland provided a rubberized strap to secure one of the doors to the bottom freezer door. However, it didn't take much for that strap to pop off. So, one day a solution just popped into my head. We have an inflatable hassock we use out on the deck, so right before I bring in the slide, I put that hassock up against the pantry. When the slide comes in, it compresses the hassock between the fridge and the pantry just enough to fill the space and hold the freezer door closed. Works great! The only issue is when we have a big change in altitude and the hassock inflates/deflates accordingly.

The plastic latches all eventually broke.
The fridge now gets a oven mit with a short bungee and the freezer happens to stow a rug and basket of shoes well between the door and the wall..
Before I started using those I just pulled a maneuver like Chris Farley in Tommy Boy to get them closed again....OK I just added that bit to see if anyone is reading ...😁

Following up on this.
I installed the fridge fixer I ordered. (thanks for the recommendation Gary)
I have a Samsung side by side fridge with freezer at the bottom. It is a snap to install. Just remove a couple of bolts from the fridge doors and add the main fridge fixer bar.

The instructions on the web site were spot on. The adjustments were simple. It is easy to use. Removing the locking plug when you need to get in the fridge on a travel day is easy.

Now for the two most important things:
1. The way the product looks in approved by my wife. (It is almost invisible when not in use. It looks like it belongs when in use or not)
2. The fridge did not fly open again on Michigan’s bumpy roads.

So far so good.

These Gear Ties are simple and effective for the refrigerator as well as any cabinets that have handles you can thread through.

The refer has never attempted to come open even a little with one of these wrapped around the handles when traveling. Many cabinets are held closed as well.

These things are so handy but they seem to evaporate. As you can see there are many size options and colors.
