Iím putting this here , in case anyone might have a solution.
Iím looking for a method of holding the doors open, so they donít flop in the wind.

Re: Doors.


Nice!

Perhaps something on the ground the doors could latch to....decorative posts or large rocks with mounted hardware and protective bumpers.

Re: Doors.


She doesnít want big honking gate hardware.
She isnít cheap.
The screen door hardware is ugly as a mud fence , but may be the only option. I was thinking of old windows that had a brass rod and a set screw.

Re: Doors.


It would be nice to make something out of matching wood.

Shouldn't be that difficult.

Re: Doors.


This might be an option.

You could also use spring return hinges, but wind them backwards. Only problem with that is the doors will want to open themselves.
