Left barn door extension

Post by Traveler » 08 Sep 2012 19:11

One of the first things that irritated me was the rear door that did not open far enough. So I purchased a door extension on eBay.
Got it this morning from the post office, and fitted it soonest.

I am very happy.

That little bracket makes a big difference in how far the door can nou open. :biggrin: :biggrin:

Thanks Tinus.
Cannot believe such a small piece of stainless steel can make such a difference in resolving an irritation.

Hi Dirk

This extension bracket came about because the clever engineers in Japan took a step backwards and made the Y61 small door not clever as the GQ.
The GQ small door opens up very well already and therefore does not need the extension bracket.
