How do you keep your 40 barn door from closing

I am curious as to what people use to keep the 40 portion of the barn doors open and not allowing the wind to close it. My door will have a flip down table on that door to use when open and I would like to keep the door from moving.
I would love to hear your ideas and find out if a special hinge exists. Thanks! My van is currently in the middle of the build process at CCV.

How to order:

Payment is $46 via PAYPAL for One Door Claw, to searay230@gmail.com. Select "Friends and Family", and under "Comments" include your address for US Postal delivery. Please include your forum name, too.

PM me if any questions! Thanks, Ray

Re rear doors - they will have nothing to hook to.

The 40 side door opens almost 180 deg and lines up with the wheel arch. The Door Talon / Claw hooks under and onto the lip of the wheel arch.

I simply put a bungee strap on the lower end of the door and the other end into one of the rear wheel wholes.

Door Talon FTW! My driveway is sloped and I use the Talon all the time. Works great and is very well made. Easy to install, too.

Thanks to everyone for the info. I placed my order with Ray this morning. He seems like a great guy with a great product. Plus he has a CCV top so we have something to chat about.
