Are these back windows meant to stay open?

It just hit me that my back two doors that go above the ramp don't have the normal clip where they can just clip to the side of the trailer. They have a different type of thing that holds the doors open but I'm wondering if they're safe enough to leave open when driving? I doubt it and hopefully we can rig something that will allow me to keep the doors open while driving. I attached a few pix of how they attach now.

Would there be any way I could make latches so I can drive with them open?

The bottom hinge looks like you could just lift the door up and off. Is the upper hinge the same?

There's only that one place where I can hook the door to stay open. Although, the back two doors just lift up and off the hinges. I'm assuming so they can just come off. They don't have windows on them.

I guess so! I'd rather them just be able to clip to the side of the trailer but I guess I figured out my problem myself! Haha

Boots, the upper part of the doors are to keep the horse from worrying about movement back there. If you don't have windows on the sides that open then have a roof vent installed so that air can enter from the front and exit near the rear. This air movement helps prevent them from overheating.
