10-Minute Tech: Hold the Door

Magnetic Door Stop
Illustration by William Tipton

I have a Forest River fifth-wheel and spend summers in Wyoming where afternoon rain showers are common. When the rain moves in, I don’t want to step out into the wet to close my RV’s door. I installed a magnetic-catch doorstop, so all I need to do is reach out and pull the door closed, rather than having to step outside and unlatch it. The latch is sturdy and was easy to install.
