Magnetic Door Retainer?

This shows installation with screws, but I would think it would work with pieces of VHB 3M tape.

No holes, no pieces sticking out, rattling, etc. And the springs make the surface adjustable to the curve of our trailers. What do you think?

i've done the "DIY" version of this. rare earth magnets on the corners of the door with steel fender washers on the edge of the cabinet. most likely a lot cheaper and it works very well. mine are attached with screws with bolts holding the washers secure. no more open doors with spilled contents after driving a bumpy road...

Nothing more than what you see. I imagine that there is a rare earth magnet inside one half. Too bad it doesn't tell you the pull weight. I haven't seen anything like this anywhere else so just wondered if anyone else had seen/tried one.


My guess is that you could make your own with a large enough magnet to hold back the main trailer door with the same tape application for installation.
