Door Swing

How does everyone control the door from catching the wind and slamming open a causing damage? Got my door put back on and I can see it happening as soon as I get it out in the wind no matter how carful I am. A chain at the top is all I can think of, but no real good way to install it without hitting my head or the screws getting pulled out of the fiberglass. I have a double shell so a bolt isn't really going to work with a chain.

I hold on tight when the wind is blowing. Same as I do with my car door.

Attach a pull handle on the door so as to not put a lot of pressure on the latch handle.
