Using Magnets to Secure a Cover

Although summer has come to an end there is still time to improve your garden with this magnetic hack, learn how to safely store your items outdoors with this magnetically securely fitted cover.

This simple application has created a secure flap opening style door on Pierre’s outdoor storage space using our Adhesive 10mm dia x 1mm N42 Neodymium Magnet with 0.58kg Pull.

Simply by adding magnets along the bottom beam of the opening to hold the cover in place when completely shut, as well as installing magnets across the top beam to hold the flap half open, and finally securing magnets along the middle of the flap to fully open this cover.

To create the attraction between the two magnets to create a secure hold it’s important to remember you need to make sure each has opposite poles on the non-adhesive side.

Pierre was able to securely add these magnets to his cover thanks to the convenient super-strong 3M™ adhesive with easy-peel backing making these magnets ideal for creating fridge magnets, book and folder closures, packaging, retail displays, and crafts.
