I installed door straps to limit door opening. The aluminum hinge has a stop, but wind blew the open door and broke both hinge stops. The cast aluminum is very weak. Strap protects the new door hinges

Interesting, haven’t even looked at them. Sounds like under engineered. Did you make your own or is it some kit?

By the way, welcome to the site! It’s nice to have more and more people providing ideas and information!
 
I made my own from snowmobile suspension limiting straps. I attached to existing door and door jam torque head bolts.
 
Here are pictures of strap and broken hinge
