How to keep van side small barn door open? 96 Ford Van

Hi wondering if anyone has an idea or optional part for keeping the smaller side barn door in the open position on my 96 Ford Van?
The small barn door is the only door on the van that doesn't have a stop/open holder from the factory....
I want to install a subwoofer inside the door and then swing it all the way open when desired for the subwoofer to add bass to the outdoor area but since this door doesn't have an open stop, it'll just swing back to close with the bass going...

Thanks

Yep! The Door Talon beats a bungee cord for sure.

The Talon solution Thankyou!

Well I thought a magnet would be the solution and perhaps simpler.

I'm not yet dealing with this subject fully so I will keep the Talon fix in mind for sure.

Thank-you

I'd use a $1 bungee cord or go to hardware store, by a few feet and make my own dedicated one for door.

I did that for years, but kept loosing the bungee when I failed to store it in the same place every time. The door talon solved the problem, it never gets lost and doesn't have to be stored every time I close the door.

Thatís what I do for the 60 door to hold it open when the stay is disconnected. Just drilled 2 small holes in the bottom of the trim just big enough for the ends of the bungee and it never leaves the door.
