 Q: Hi Steve,

I’m frustrated with the door hold-open devices on my old Cessna 182.

The left door hold has never been very reliable—sometimes it’s strong enough to hold the door open, but if the wind is blowing at all, it doesn’t work. The right one is okay.

I’ve done a little research on the web and it seems like my best bet is to put on a hold-open device called a Door Steward. Do you know anything about this product?
