Dometic door shelf bracket

There are grooves on the lower {slip in} shelf on the door of my Dometic 24a. They are made to take a [wire? plastic?] bracket(?) retainer(?) that helps to keep things in the shelf, in the shelf. I believe the technical term is holder inner thingee. It's all one piece and bent to fit.
If you have one could you post the dimensions of said thingee?
Total height from the bottom of the door to the cross bar?
Length of the straight section that fits in the grooves? I believe it is longer than the grooves are deep.
Length of the straight section from the outward angle to the cross bar?
Distance from back of a curve on the door to the cross bar?
And anything else you think I should know.
Also, if anyone thinks that said thingee is a PITA and that I should not bother to try to make one, let me know.
I need my rig by the 22nd. and it will be road-worthy and ready. It may not be pretty but it will roll!
Thanks in advance. D.

Thanks just the same but I got the information from another source. Now all I have to do is bend one into shape. D.

Dave, do not carry items in the door while under tow. If your refrigerator is in good shape, you need to know that more than one person has had to post about the need to repair cracked plastic inside the refrigerator due to items bouncing around inside. I always carry a cooler (need it for beverages anyway) and find it 'safer' to transport my groceries to my site. YMMV

I hope the attachment gets attached.
The upright section of the bracket is 3 inches. This fits into the slots on the inner sides of the shelf
The angle [from the vertical upright] is 30 degrees.
This places the crossbar at about 3.75 inches from the curve in the door liner.
The angled section [from the upright to the crossbar] is 1.5 inches.
The crossbar measures 14.8125 [14 13/16"] inches across.

I will try to make one this week and let you know how it works out. My only concern is that the crossbar may tangle with the front of the bottom shelf in the fridge. It it does, I will take .25 inches [1/4"] off the bottom of the uprights.

Donna, thanks for the info on travelling with a loaded shelf. This is our/my sixth Trillium and I can't remember if this was ever a problem before. I do remember that a couple had cracked shelves.
I usually have the Koolatron in the vehicle so storing items while travelling will not be a problem. D.
