Suitable magnets

If a closet door doesn't close properly, countersunk pot magnets (extremely strong) or countersunk neodymium magnets (available round or angular) can be installed in the closet together with iron counterparts. The customer application Closing a closet door with magnets documents the exact steps.

The following magnets are suitable for closing closet doors:

Suitable metal counterparts

As counterpart to the magnets we recommend our thin metal plates & metal discs with a hole in the same size as the magnets: Thanks to the countersunk borehole, the screw head can be countersunk flush.

Our assortment features even practical furtniture magnets by now that work well as magnetic closures for cabinet doors:
