Yeah, doorpins are a real problem. A guy told me, a tool is available for pulling out these pins. Is it true?

I personally prefer the Barn Doors over the Dutch Door design. For me I put skids in the back of the truck on a regular basis. With the Dutch Doors the forklift operator has to be very careful not to run in to the upper portion of the door glass when loading the skid. When I had the van with barn doors there was no issue.

YEAH!! barn doors can load up skids fast and easy,
and when you are at a loading dock. open the barn door wide open and back the car into the dock and save a lot of back pain if you got 10 to 30 box of paper to unload (500 - 1500 lbs)
