Bottom Door Bar Hook

They call it a bottom door bar hook and they say it helps to force the bottom of the door closed on older trailers. I called the parts guy there and he was not sure if it would work on a Boler door or not. I can't quite see how it would work from the picture. Has anybody ever installed one of these on a Scamp or Boler, or have any insight as to whether or not it may work for me?
Hi John,
A couple of years ago I noticed the same thing on the Scamp website and inquired about it on this forum. The feeling then was that it would likely not help much with forcing the door closed. This led me to actually fix the door, with a repair that was relatively easy to do, worked great and is still working. If you have the same issue as me, it might be a better way to go. The entire thread can be viewed here:

Good luck.

Our 83 has a horrendous bottom gap. I took the simple (and farmer/redneck) way. I put an eyebbolt thru the bottom of the door and one in the cabinent under the couch/gaucho. When closing the door bend down grab the rubber bungee cord (referred to as a "tarp strap" in our neighborhood), strech it and hook into the eye in the door. Sucks it real tight....
