Water heater cover

I decided to do this little door mod. I’ve heard of these doors falling off when under tow.

As you can see the door hinges are held on by these little metal clips. They bend easily and the door can become loose.

My mod is simple. I drill a small hole next to the metal clip and fill it with silicone and put a large head screw with a washer over the clip to hold it secure.

Should help me keep my water heater cover a little longer….
