Those are for Dometic fridges. I am yet to make them work properly on my Dometic. I have had two Norcolds and their hold open latches work great. May have to go out and revisit my Dometic fridge and try again.

On many Norcold fridges they have a little slide latch on each door. Unlatch the door and very slightly begin to pull it open and at the same time start pushing on the latch till it catches in the jam.

There is at least one Youtube video on this.

If you can't find a way to keep the doors open place a 1X6" board under the tires on the side where the fridge sits. The doors will stay open on their own and it won't hurt a thing.
