I'm sure I saw somewhere on one of the forums some sort of catch that could be fitted to allow the sliding door on a Ducato van to be locked partially open. Our drive slopes slightly meaning I have to lock the door fully open, it would be better if I can leave it half open. I think the catch/mechanism was on a German website but have been unable to find it.
German manufacturer called STOPSY.
BTW a tennis ball is cheaper, pushed into lower track
The one i,ve seen just bolts to the top sliding track easy fit I,ll have a look tonite when I get home
Tezza33 got the one I saw before

I posted a link before but it might have been on the other forum
Stopsy© Türstopper Kastenwagentür - Wohnmobil & Caravan Zubehör Stopsy Regsy Spoisy Regenrinne Dachluke Spoiler für Kastenwagen
I knew I'd seen it mentioned before but couldn't remember what it was called. Will have a look at the other ideas mentioned but looking at the Stopsy I might have a go at making something similar. Bit expensive at €34.95
Got bigger problems than the sliding door, got brand new van Elddis CV40. Problems with the paperwork to DVLA & van isn't registered yet so dealer drove it to my home on dealer plates. On the way back home wife had some water drip from the skylight, ok not sure where from but pointed out to the driver & agreed it needed looking at. Today still waiting for DVLA decided to get ladder out to look on roof, did take pictures but too big to post. The roof is covered in rust from the front to the back, probably most is surface rust but to me even cleaning it off would mean removing everything (skylights, solar panel, aerial etc) just to clean it off. How or where the rust came from to me is not relevant. Antway waiting for the dealer to respond to the pictures I sent telling him I am rejecting the van.
Now not sure where that leaves me, I haven't driven the van yet but we part ex'd our Swift to buy this van. I can't drive my old van at the moment as its plated at 3.7t (can be down plated to the 3.5t) but didn't bother has I'd decided not to renew my license with the C1 category. Trying to find out what the situation is, I am willing to work with the dealer for a solution. The van is a dealer special edition & he doesn't have anymore in stock, these tend to be made in batches so not sure when they could get one. Do I have to accept my Px back? if so I'll be the first & second owner also I would have to re-plate the weight, also I have insured the new van for the year so whatever happens there is likely to be a cost.
I like the van but not willing to take a chance that the rust might reappear sometime in the future.
Here are a couple of pics.

Looks like the sealant hasn't been applied to all the joints, the rust will have formed in the joints, reject van.
