Door Latch Seat Belts"I have an old barn with big double doors that are each 14 ft. high and 8 ft. wide. A long pole fits into brackets on either side of the doors inside the barn, running across the center of both doors. For years I've just tied wires from the doors to the pole to hold the doors shut. The problem is that wire doesn't last long before it breaks. To solve the problem I started using old seatbelts," says Ronald Lenske, Egadine, Mich.
