Devon only fitted on front door as per VW. Basically the check strap goes through a slot cut in the filet at the side of the tall cupboard. The pin is accessible inside the cupboard. On mine and others I have seen there is a wooden door prop held by a blacked dome capped japanned wood screw. This allows the front cargo door to be propped open but the check strap holds the door from bashing the drivers door.

I have dimensions of position n size of prop Image

thank you for the reply,
how heigh up are your check straps fitted and were there any fitted to the other door too as mine has belt line trim and without a check strap it will hit the trim.
many thanks

They are fitted as per VW standard as in the picture of the bracket and pin on the back of the B post. The cargo doir inner pressing as I recall even has a pair of indents to take the screws for the door cleat.
I am unaware if VW fitted a check strap to Deluxe buses on the back of the C post.
I have seen check straps similarly fitted to a 65 MY Devon style interior on the C post at a similar height.
