We’ve all seen magnetic catches on cabinets — you know, the kind where if you pull hard enough you overcome the magnetic force to open the door. But the bigger the door, the bigger the magnet needed to hold it closed and the harder you have to yank the door to get it open. Using their switchable magnets, Magswitch has come up with a way to hold doors securely yet let them open easily without having to pull so hard.
Magswitch designed their cabinet latches to fit standard 8-32 or M4 threaded knobs so you’re not stuck with some industrial-looking knob on your fine cabinetry. When you turn the knob to the on position the magnets hold the door closed with 10lbs of force which should keep even heavy doors closed. Turn the knob to the off position and the door opens freely.
Two striker plates are included in the $7 or $8 price.
