Great Latch.
This is a great latch that reduces the labor of making your own by using small permanent magnets and makes mounting easier.

Works as expected
I had a project that I built a few years ago with a very similar part. I just completed another one and Rockler was the only place I could find this part. Boy was I glad they had it, and it just happened to be on sale. I needed a pair but it was packaged as two pair. So, next time, I'll won't need to order them! Thank you, Rockler! The specs call for a 9/16 inch hole, but I had to shave off the ribs on the magnet body to get it to fit into the cherry cabinet frame. Once installed, the magnet was snugly in place. The magnet is strong enough for my application and I am satisfied with this purchase.

Did the job
Needed a magnetic catch for a mirror frame cabinet door. 5/16" catch fit in the 3/4" stock of the cabinet box and the washer fit on the mirror frame without damaging the mirror.

Nice product. Strong magnets held the doors well without being too strong for the small chest.

According to the reviewers, these catches have a low holding force. I considered using the rare earth magnets, but I didn't want to have to pry my cabinet doors open with a claw hammer!

I am making a clock I bought from rockler
and lost one of the barrel magnets,when i found it on rockier it only shows a 7/16 and a 5/16 but the plans called fora 21/64 which I had drilled the hole for the insert.I decided on the 7/16. Is the correct choice?
Ron l. on Sep 13, 2017
currently have ball/spring door top closure (closet doors) which no longer work. Considering your #29280, how difficult would it be to convert? Thank you.
SELWYN on Mar 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, and thanks for the question, I hope I can give you some useful information.
Let me start by saying this is not a very strong magnetic catch. Notice the grayish strip that looks like a screwdriver slot? That is the magnet, not very big at all. That said, if your door requires a fair amount of force to stay closed I would not recommend this latch get something bigger. If however you're talking about a small box or a lid that closes by swinging down on horizontal hinges so it kind of keeps itself closed then you are OK with this latch. I used mine on a jewelry box that stands about 18" tall and has a door that swings out on vertical hinges. It holds the door closed but when you go to open it no resistance from the catch is noticeable. That is OK on the jewelry box, but I would not use that same catch on a large cabinet for example.
Cheers
Bill
what is the separation force required for the 5/16 " catch? Is is appropriate for a child's jewelry box?
Walter B on Aug 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've used a similar part in a previous project that required more force. I find this new part from Rockler to have a reasonable separation force that should be easy for a child.
