Simple, No Cost Refrigerator Lock

This is something my husband came up with as the solution to our refrigerator opening up and spilling it's contents while we are towing. Works great and didn't cost a thing.

We have a two door refrigerator which has the reversing door option. So, it has a hinge between the two doors with a hole in it in case we want to have the doors open the other way. We use this hinge as the base for our refrigerator lock. We just pull a long twist tie through the hole in the hinge and then wrap the twist tie around a small block of wood that holds both doors in place. See attached examples.

We never have a mess to clean up anymore and the solution was a no cost item. Being Yankees we love that part.

I thought there must be something missing from the door to keep it closed when traveling. I had to put my ice cooler in front of it at my 10 mile stop to check on things. There were water bottles scatered all over the floor when I stopped. The ice cooler works for travel but now my cat seems to think he needs to get himself a cold one while I am away. So thanks to you myboyburt for the tip, now I can keep "Boots" out of the frig he's such a lush.
