Great invention
Tried all the local hardware stores in my area including the big ones. No one carries such a thing and I use these frequently in repairing old antique furniture where nothing else works.

Cabinet drawer creep.
Top quality product but, for my specific application, difficult to install on a large kitchen cabinet drawer . . . alignment was my challenge. W/O the extreme help from Sherry & her knowledge, this installation would be a lesson in futility. Works well on one drawer however. another drawer requires more wood trim elevation which needs 1/4â?? longer magnet mounting screws.

Holds Tight
I took the lock out and just put this magnet in its place. It holds the door tight on my wife's curio cabinet. It was an easy fix.

Woodworking Experience:
Good alternative
Magnetic catches seem to always be a problem to use on face frame style cabinets or furniture with inset doors without adding blocking or some other secondary structure. This offset bracket eliminates all of that -- it provides an easy, clean way to install magnetic catches. I wish I would have noticed these years ago!

Worked great...just what I needed
Needed a catch for the doors on an entertainment cabinet. The doors are recessed 1/4" from the face frame. These catches allowed for the offset perfectly.

Can this replace kitchen cabinet knob latches? If so, do you use regular knobs on the doors, with this catch on the inside?
Jane G on Jul 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think if the magnet is lined up with the door, it should keep the cabinet door in place. If it is a long or tall cabinet door, I suggest to use two magnets, one higher than the other, especially if the cabinet doors are wood, which tend to change from their original dimensions because of the heat and cooling over the seasons.
