Storage Lock Bracket?

Hey Guys,

I have an old 01 Fleetwood Expedition that have the worst design storage doors and locks. Is there a fix for any of this? Are these U-shaped lock brackets available anywhere?

Most my locks don't even reach no matter how I adjust and slide the doors on the hinge.

Thanks!

I'm not known for my brightness here on the forum but what "storage doors" are you referring to? That image doesn't look familiar to me. It doesn't look as if it's from a basement storage compartment door, correct? Is it it from a door on an interior storage compartment of some type?

You can unscrew those brackets, place some washers under both sides and see if the latch will reach. Each one may take a different number of washers to adjust.

Thanks, I saw that, problem is it's too narrow for the locks to reach. I only lock one side of the door on the majority of the cabinets.

thanks!
