Shed Door Latch Tip

Tips

 

Subscriber Terry Hretsina forwarded his tip of keeping the shed doors open when going in and out.

"Hi Tim,

Being a subscriber, I thought I would pass this little helpful hint to you in case some of your subscribers are looking for ways to keep a shed door open for a short time.

What I did is put a piece of 2x6 (cut a short length) and screwed a hinge on the door frame and on the piece of wood.

Picture 1: When I open the door wide, I flip the piece of wood inside the space of the shed door and then snug the door gently so it stays. If there is no wind, it stays open.

Picture 2: For you to go in and out of the shed. If you want to keep it open, you can always attach a 'hasp and staple' type of hatch to the wood or just use a 'hatch and staple' latch by itself."

  1. Tim and Terry,

    Thanks for the idea. It is always nice to get simple little fix to something that you never realized how much it bugged you until you can get an easy fix. ;-)
