The best way to Install Magnets in Cabinets

To avoid bathroom or kitchen cupboard doors it is possible to equip them. The magnets come together with the metal plates which can be attracted to them and are encased in plastic. The real key to your magnet installation is making sure the plate as well as the magnet make contact when you screw them to the cabinet. When installing the magnet, you will connect the plate to the rails, which are the horizontal and vertical parts that encompass the open-face of the cupboard to the door as well as the part that is encased.

Open the cabinet door to expose the open-face of the cupboard, that’s where the magnet will probably be attached. Look for the encounter rail.

Hold the magnet in the cabinet opening together with the base pressed from the face rail it will be attached by you to. Slide the magnet down and up over the encounter rail to to find an area which is inconspicuous and from the way of things moving in and from the cabinet.

Check the magnet is flush to the encounter of the cabinet’s. Place the tip of a pencil through the fastener slots to leave marks on the cupboard. A drill having a 1/16-inch bit and make two 1/2 inch- pilot holes to the cupboard materials.

Align the slots to the two pilot holes of the magnet casing. Thread to secure the casing to the wood cupboard edge. Tighten the screws with a Phillips screw-driver.

Swing the cupboard door till it’s closed. Locate the stage where the magnet casing up lines using the door. Place a mark that is visible on the face of the door in the place where contact will be made by the magnet.

Open the door to expose the back side of the cupboard door as well as the mark that is obvious. Place up the steel plate and secure it to the do or by threading the screw fastener during the pre- slot in the plate.

Close the cabinet do-or and hear for the click of magnet and the plate coming-together. Repeat with all cupboard doorways.
