thinking of making some tube doors

So, I'm thinking of making some rear tube doors. so I can run totally doorless but still keep the dog in the back. Going to make them out of some 1" tube steel I came across and I'm kicking around some design ideas.

My question is.... what have others used for latches. I know Rugged ridge makes some specifically for the JK but I was wondering if anyone has used anything else. Such as old hinges from TJ or a YJ soft doors, something like that. They don't have to lock or anything, after all they are tube doors.

Theres a thread on here somewhere from when I built mine (also mainly for the dog) with a video of my simple latch setup.
I'll try to find it but searches suck on tapatalk
