Hey guys, in the middle of fabbing up some doors for my Rhino. I am having a hell of a time trying to come up with a good solution for the latches. I would love it if I could figure out some sort if easy way to secure the doors. So far I haven’t cane up with anything satisfactory. I’ll post some oics of what I am looking at. Hoping some of y’all could share your wisdom.

I wonder if a Neodymium magnet like the following would work? https://www.amazon.com/Neodymium-Co...jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

By the way, I like the doors.
Thank you sir, and those are both great odeas. Now ive got to think about how to rig either one if those up.

Thats awesome! Great idea in the latches. Wish I would have thought of that. Thinking about how i would make that work for opening the door from the exterior side.
make a plate to the frame of door mount katch them on a pillar make striker plate….i am work out the details to make release handles tha will work with a cable and a pivot point
Finally got around to posting the finished pictures of my doors. As for the door latches i just welded a bar on either end of a piece of all thread and welded a nut to either side of the door. Works well. For insulation i just used foam board.

Love the suicide doors. It looks like an armored cab. What is the noise level like inside?
