That looks a lot more professional than the 2x4 that I use to block the hinge:-)
Nicely done.

It should included for all the deliveries going forward.

Re: Alumines swing arm holder opener Thingies

That's nice...I hate it when I'm on an angle or wind slams the gate into the door

I did add this mod after leaving the gates open when I washed the vehicle. Thank God I didn't tweak anything but I'll tell you I did freak when I saw it swing out while taking a corner.

I added this rubber stop to keep the damage from occuring to my new utility box. It looks ok and works well. These stops are avaliable in a variety of shapes and sizes from most auto parts stores. This one is made by Dorman products #31053.

I've just been using bungie cords. The poor mans fix but works fine.
