Anyone else fitted either Stopsy or Stay-Put? Do they allow you to easily have the door fully open? That’s my default and I love it but when it’s really windy I need to shield the gas and end up closing the door completely but I really prefer it open ... one of the bonuses of the sliding door ... Wombles I don’t suppose there’s a current discount code?

Since 1995 + 20Yrs a 'Tugger' first.
Made my own Stopsy out of 20mm x 20mm x 2mm aluminium angle. Just put a really smooth 'ramp' on the back and front with a dremmel and it works really well. Stuck to the rail with double sided tape. Can easily push it past the centre stop to open the door fully when required.

Use a tennis ball and a 'wind deflector' for your cooker ... we have one that came with a previous MH which wasn't needed as it had been upgraded to include a full cooker (the deflector was for use with a basic hob) so we kept it and it has proved to be extremely useful over the years in our campers and motorhomes with the hobs next to the hab door/sliding door, we still use it in our Carthago.

Ours is simply 2 pieces of aluminium plate, about 18" x 10", 'hinged' on the short side and we just stand it up so it runs along the rear and side of the cooker nearest the door, we don't actually need it to be 2 full pieces as we have a glass cooker lid to protect the rear but it works as we need it to so no point in cutting it down.

If it's not clear what I'm referring to, something like the wind deflectors you get on camping stoves would work - see below:

You can actually buy 3 sided ones which might be the right size:

There are also the multi-plate folding ones too - they come in various sizes, example below:

Why does the stopsy need a back plate, surely one flat plate with the 2 bumps would work if sikaflexed down?

???? We have a 3 ring hob with split glass cover ... the wind deflector also comes in useful to prevent hubby splattering the wallboard when he's cooking! :giggle:

If you use Sikaflex or double sided tape on the bottom only of the DIY Stopsy it becomes too thick and the rollers realy 'clunk' over it.

I assume the Stopsy is still available to buy. It’s a German company isn’t it. I am interested in one but not sure how simple they are to order.

Have a read through the earlier posts on this thread for how to order especially post #12 & right click on most websites brings up "Translate to English" (y)
