Let them know, they've been pretty supportive from what I've seen on the forums. That said, yeah, these unfortunately just don't work as much as I wanted them too, there's not enough clearance to have a proper structure and mine still rubbed.

Actually, they fit rater well. So I had high hopes ASOK had fixed the problem along with the glue. But obviously......

AOSK has been very supportive in this forum, providing a lot of value and responsiveness to forum members. Throwing them under the bus with this click bait thread is not cool.

Maybe reach out to them and see if they have a solution or design change planned. I own a business and people who go straight to reviews or whining to the world really get a lot less done than just emailing or picking up a phone and working with us. You’d be amazed at how much we want to help probably because the vast majority of us take much more pride in what we do than the normal employee.

If you are happy with the look and design, there are adhesives that would permanently bond them on. A two part Hysol used on aircraft structures comes to mind.

Why are these needed? Is there an issue with the push button door openers?

Some people do not like the rear door opening technique and prefer the small handles like the front. Hence the aftermarket mod. I’m happy with the stock door opening system personally.

I’ve also found @AOSK to have exemplary customer service. My favorite mod company. (Not a paid endorsement;))

Yep. Some people meaning parents of kids that sometimes try to pull the door shut from the backseat, while mom or dad has their fingers on the door frame, because there’s no gd door handle. Fun times. Feels great. Way to go Ford.

Parents have to step up their game. 😄

No kids here. We have a cat though as the whole darn forum knows.

Seriously, the rear door issue you described just never occurred to me as … no kids … I think the original idea of the rear doors is good but they failed to consider just how “creative” little ones can be. That part I definitely remember. ;)

My mom has Parkinson’s. It is really hard for her to get her hand in the gap and opened the door. A button push and a grip is much better.

Best wishes for you mom. My mother had Parkinson’s as well. She passed away very shortly before Christmas not a kick in the pants short of 89. You’re doing good by thinking of how to make things easier for her.
