If you can find a couple of lobster-claw jewelry clasps (stainless-steel, the bigger the better), they'll fit through the mesh and hold the door-flap closed.  (Use pliers to open the jaws if hot, or remove the drum and let it cool first).  Failing that, I'd suggest stripping the paper from twist-ties and twisting the bare wires closed just enough that you can either reopen them after the roast or snip them open and discard them. Even a paper clip might work.

Of course the Danish dealer does not have drums I g can get to replace my drum. The problem is that the European distributor is out of drums too, and there is no word of how long it will take before a new drum is available.
