door-lock

In American terms this van could hold about 10 people. In Dominican terms they fit as many as are physically possible, which could mean 25. I was the last one in. We sat 4 deep in a row that should fit 2. My right foot was on the runner board and only half my butt fit on the seat. the sliding door didn't have a latch or a lock. So that piece of twine was for that purpose. I cinched it down and did my best not to put weight on the door, if I had shifted right in a turn. . . that twine door-lock was my safety net.
