Simple Water Heater door lock mod
I did not like the way the water heater door stayed closed. One tab broke because it was plastic...the 2nd popped off while traveling. I looked into some options and wandered the hardware isle at HomeDepot and came up with this for about $4.00. I used the spring, a threaded 2" eye hook and a locknut. Tightened the locknut till the spring compressed a little bit for tension when the door is closed, added the clip as a secondary stay closed piece... could put a lock through the eye hook if need be but it seems to be working fine.
