And, then I drove a washboard road, picked the canned goods off the floor and tossed the bars in a junk bin.
Now I just run a bungee cord through the handles of three cupboards so they can't possibly open.
I bet the inside of the doors are all banged up.
Also the cans were allowed to move around instead of arranged to they couldn't move. This is kind of like shipping a glass item in box without enough packing. Same principle.

Little room between your standard can ( standing up ) and the door itself. Haven't noticed dented doors, but that's likely over time.
Here's pix.
I recently installed a lip on the bottom front of the cupboard, but it's not tested. I can use bungee with plastic coated hooks.

This cabinet handle was intended to be a spoon too... but with a spoon full of creativity, it ain't now!

Cabinet door latches

I have been meaning to mention this for some time.... so here it is.... Non locking baggage door locks should work well for all of the cabinets. You can even paint the knobs also,
