Works very well
Easy to install. Just need to make sure you have some play allowing you to push the door/drawer front in about 1/16" to activate the mechanism. No complaints.

I built a "Hanging Tool Cabinet" (Fine Woodworking Project Plan) and thought it would add to the overall value to have the six doors open and close with the magnetic latches.

Can this be used on a regular bathroom door?
A shopper on May 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It depends on what you mean by "regular" door.? If you have an inset door, then yes you can as the latch needs to be able to be depressed inward to release the mechanism. But if you have an overlay door Rockler's sells a barrel type magnetic latch/catch that would be better suited for your application. As a side note, you asked about a bathroom door? These are for cabinets and not entry doors, if that is what your question was about.
Can this latch be mounted with doiuble stick tape?
dave j on Apr 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend that.
what is pull force of this magnetic touch latch 28381?
Robert P on Mar 7, 2017
can they be used on drawers ?
John F on Nov 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These are not designed to be used on drawers nor do they have any instructions showing how to do so. I am a woodworker and engineer and I can imagine how the latch might be used on a drawer. However, self-closing drawer slides accomplish pretty much the same thing and do not require that the drawer be pushed a quarter inch or so inwards in order to be opened. You may be clever enough to figure out how to make it work, but your success depends on the size, weight, and physical arrangement of the drawer and supporting cabinet.
Do they make a clicking noise?
DENNIS O on Apr 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Ours doesn’t, but it could be because it’s used on glass not wood or an ‘echo-y’ type of material. Unfortunately, I don’t have a way to test it on another material. It’s worked great for us.
How strong is the magnet and will it stay shut in an earthquake ?
Michele F on Feb 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is strong enough to hold the 1/4" glass panel but I would say that it's no different then any other cabinet magnet and therefore would say that no it wouldn't hold back any object with weight in an earthquake.
How far does the latch travel inward to release the plunger? I'd like to use this latch on frameless shop cabinets with full overlay doors. I'm using no-mortise hinges that will hold the hinge edge of the doors about 1/16 out from the cabinet boxes. Thanks!
Rob M on Jun 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Rob, I used these on a cabinet door 16"x16". But the door sits even with the face frame. I only need to push the door in about a 1/16" to release it, but you will need a pretty good push to lock the plunger past the internal lock of the latch. At least 3/16- 1/4" so if I understand your question correctly, this catch may not be for your particular need. A good stationary magnet may be your answer but you will need to use a door handle. The reason I used these is that I didn't want to use a door handle. Hope this helps!
can this latch be used on an inset cabinet door?
Jean F on Jul 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If your cabinet is non-face-frame this would work on an inset door. If your cabinet is face-frame then there would have to be some blocking added to mount this latch for an inset door, but either way it will work.
I have the single magnetic touch catch. Do I mount it with the spring latch in or out?
Jasie J on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will want to have it in. This way you can line up the door with the cabinet easier.
This sounds like exactly what I want, but I'm concerned about the size of my cabinet doors. They are 15" wide and 49" long. What do you think?
Jackie C on Apr 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used this on a 48” x 24” glass door and it worked just fine.
What is the depth of the part with the magnetic piece pushed in?
Tigress on Feb 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 1 13/16"
Will a magnetic latch work with soft close hinges?
mekaman on Jul 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's not really designed for that because it uses a spring to "pop" the door open for you. if you need extra holding power to keep something closed for some reason a regular door magnet would probably work better.
