Door Check Strap - Options?

The stock door check strap feature of my 54 Chevy truck consisted of a horseshoe spring located in the upper hinge. I was successful in replacing one of them but other kept breaking once it was installed. To get around this frustration I would like to install a standalone door check strap. I have noticed the style used on some imports (toyota) appear to be workable but would like to identify other options.

Who has retrofitted a door check strap mechanism into their vehicle and what did you use?
