Thanks, Bill! We're having alot of fun with the projects.
We use that vertical cabinet as our pantry, and once a full box of pancake mix did push its way out. Luckily it wasn't opened, or we would have looked like Lucy in "The Long, Long Trailer". Now I just lay heavy boxes and cans flat in the bottom of the cabinet, and fill the spaces between our wire shelves with bags of cereal, chips, etc.
The only other thing I can think of is one of those springy plastic levers you reach in and press down inside a partially open cabinet or drawer, used for babyproofing. That was our project 19 years ago- maybe there's something better now.

I bought some spring hatch openers and plan to install to hold my hatches open for loading and unloading. Great tip, Tammie.

Sid had posted the great Halloween version of these, and when I saw a little white pumpkin at the craft store, my fiberglass-lovin heart went pitterpat!

Hi Tim,

My husband was the brains behind that project. The springs are Hillman brand 10" tension springs There's a close up pic at post #19 of all the little parts and pieces that Joel put together from the hardware store. Later, he saw the ready-made version called the Attwood Hatch Lift Spring at a marine supply.

Fellow ParkLiner friend Frank found the RV Designer H271 Springloaded Cabinet Door Struts. We had one more cabinet (that we forgot to count when buying springs) so we used a strut there.

The spring supports the door then closes with just a tap (or inadvertent bump) The struts hold strong then snap shut pretty powerfully. Advantages to both, imo.

Hope this helps!
