Device to lock rear doors open 90 degrees?
Idle thinking alert! Wondering if someone has seen or come up with a device that will lock the rear doors open 90 degrees. In other words, straight back. I can't remember exactly which van, but I thought I saw something like this from a different make (Nissan NV2500?).
I could find this useful for a number of reasons. Doors not swinging in the wind or due to a slope, etc.
If the door is fixed in this position, I could rig some steps that could fold out from the doors to help me climb up on the roof (solar panel cleaning). I warned you, this was idle thinking at play!
I recall a member having a cable-based "stop" that would prevent the doors swing *greater* than 90 degrees, but I don't think it'd prevent it swing back closed.
Ordered Feb 2018, arrived Sept 2018. 159-inch WB regular length, high top, 3.6L gas, both driver's and passenger-side sliding doors. Planning to lightly camper-ize it for spontaneous and free-spirited travel!
