Master BR wardrobe closet doors

master bedroom wardrobe closet doors in my Seneca are sliding back-and-forth as I am driving or turning corners. Does someone have solutions that they have used for this problem.
Don't understand why the latch is not strong enough to keep it from happening.

I have had no problems with mine. I can take pictures of them if you want so you can compare. I can not imagine them being difficult to replace or expensive if you need a better solution.

Every one I ever had was equipped with a plastic latch that holds the door closed while underway. They are inexpensive and work.

I can post a pic if you need one.

Mine have been replaced by the dealer. Broken latch tab in the mechanism. CW has a medium and heavy latch combo that is exactly the product. Catalog #36121 medium and #49551 for heavy. Medium works fine.

You need to close them firmly, don't slam them, just close slow but firm, you will hear a click then they are latched. I can just push my closed, won't latch, have to do it firmly.
