You could add a set of pneumatic arms to each side of the door which should take care of the problem. You can get them at most auto parts stores and I think Walmart carries some.

HunterII sounds like a good idea, Ihaving someconcernson how to determine the correct length any ideas?

Someone has said to open the door from the top and I have looked at thatbut that will not work because it will hit the pad before opens all the way.

Could you use the same type hook that holds your door open? If that would work for you it would be less costly and it definitely would hold it up there.

That may be what I need to look at,the pneumatic arms I do not see how to mount them.

I would not even consider doing this latch thing exceptDW was looking in the pass through and I was walking by when the wind unlatched the door and it stared to fall, I caught the door just before it hit her backbone.
