25/27FB Bath Door magnetic holder

Posting this for a few that have asked. We installed a magnetic latch to hold the bath door on our 25FB open. Works for us and we noticed that other folks with the same layout had the same, velcro, belt, rope or rubber band holding the door open as well.
We took some pics to show this easy fix. Nanc found our latch on a plane ride from Air Mall but we saw the same magnetic latch at Home Depot recently, under 10 bucks.
First pic shows the door latched by the magnet. Pic 2 shows the latch inself, mounted to the L bracket and the bracket "Industrial Velcro" attached under the accordion screen dead spot. The Velcro let on do final adjustments prior to mounting the other magnet to the door. Final pic is the door brackets, mounted and mostly out of the way...Note that though our 2007 CCD did not have it originally, we replaced the old door latch (The HOOK) with a newer flush mounted latch, Easy.)
Hope this work for ya Jewls...

Why not use one of the flip down feet that are used to hold doors open everywhere? That's what I did with mine - many different styles/finishes can be found at any hardware store.

Al,
We use to use a nice river rock but Nanc found this latch, ordered it and I installed it...She makes great coffee Al.
Another option would be the flip down door holder you used, another good idea. Thanks, Stream Safe,
